I've not grown it myself but I've seen it grown in other gardens ... I'd definitely not call it a ground cover rose ... I've seen Rosa Bonica called ground cover too ... not in my book ... I'd call both of them lower-growing shrubs ... wider than they are tall, but not ground cover ... I think that's misleading.

Unfortunately there's a glitch on the forum preventing pictures from uploading properly ... the team are aware and hopefully it will be sorted soon.

There are various types of scale insect ...  perhaps it's Euonymus scale. ... scroll down a bit ...

they don't just restrict themselves to the plants they're named after
