Blooms early summer to frost. Likes well drained, moist soil but is tolerant of most soil conditions. Moderate to fast growth habit. This rose does not need to be sprayed like many other rose varieties. This variety is not suitable for small gardens. It is a landscaping rose for covering large areas. Fertilization will help increase blooming. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in early spring. Pruning is usually not needed, but may be trimmed in spring.

  • I purchased this because I needed something for erosion control on a slope. I've had it about 9 months with very little growth. I keep waiting for that described heighth and width. I know it is a new plant but very, very few blooms.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.

  • This plant grew like crazy the first year. When March came and the snows melted this plant was green with leaves and buds. This is a great ground cover.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
