Description:
Flower Carpet® Pink Splash provides masses of bi-colour (hot pink and pale pink) blooms covering the bush from November through to late April. Flower Carpet® Pink Splash has rich glossy green foliage, on a bush which is more compact than the original Flower Carpet® Pink. This is a genuinely easy-care groundcover rose - consistently one of the most disease-resistant roses ever bred - ideal for both home gardeners and professional landscapers. Use in flowerbeds, mass plantings, large containers and as a standard tree rose. A perfect commercial landscaping plant for low-maintenance colour. Grows to 60 cm - 80 cm tall.

Cultural Notes: Plant 2-3 per square metre, for ground cover. For a stunning display, plant 13 in 3 square metres. Plant 80cm apart to establish boundaries. Can be planted anytime during Spring, Summer or Autumn. When planting in the landscape, water in well particularly during hot conditions and continue to water regularly until the plant is established. Flower Carpet roses are very tolerant of dry conditions once established. No fancy pruning needed. Cut back by 2/3rds annually in late Winter or early Spring. Trim to shape anytime of year, if desired. The bush is self-cleaning with few rose hips, no dead-heading required, petals fall away cleanly. For maximum flowering and performance, feed with a balanced (15:5.2:10) controlled release rose fertiliser in early Spring and again in late Summer. For established landscape plants, apply 1 to 2 handfuls around the base of the plant and incorporate into the soil by gentle surface cultivation. Very tolerant of common rose blights such as black spot and mildew. It does not require routine chemical spraying in the landscape, apply only if needed.
