ROSA

The rose is the queen of flowers, the most loved and widely planted shrub in all temperate parts of the world. More than 14,000 varieties are grown. Although mostly deciduous, roses can be evergreen in mild climates. Their stems, sometimes quite prickly, may be erect, arching, trailing, or scrambling. Leaves are divided into three, five, or seven leaflets, usually with toothed margins.

Rosa, Groundcover

These are low-growing plants, around 2 or 2 1/2 ft. tall, that spread to at least 3 ft. wide (some reach 6 ft. or wider). Vigor, disease resistance, and a profusion of bloom from late spring until frost are the hallmarks of this category. Groundcover roses are perfect for covering slopes, creating low barriers to foot traffic on level ground, and growing in containers.

The most commonly available groundcover roses are those in the Flower Carpet series, available in a wide range of colors. Several of the trademarked Meidiland roses, such as ‘White Meidiland’, are sufficiently low growing to be used as groundcovers. ‘Sea Foam’, a shrub rose, makes a fine groundcover about 3 ft. tall and 6 ft. wide; and some miniature roses have a pretty, sprawling habit. Several of the species roses and some of the climbing roses make good groundcovers as well.
