Plant details

This is one of the County Series of ground cover roses, and also one of the most attractive. It stands out as an especially attractive variety, not just for ground cover, at which it excels, but as a naturally trailing specimen shrub for pots, window-boxes and hanging baskets. The stems branch freely to interweave and form a dense mat which is covered with fresh light green leaves. The blooms, slightly fragrant, are a vibrant mix of orange, pink and yellow, all the more eye-catching since they are single and enhanced by a central boss of golden stamens. To prune, simply cut back if it is exceeding the designated area for growth in late winter or early spring.
