Ground Cover Roses

  Low Growing Ground Cover Carpet Roses

Rose, Fairy Pink Cushion

Ground Cover Roses grow low to the ground, spread out, and require very little to keep them beautiful. These ground cover carpet roses are ideal for a massed planting. They are hardy, no-fuss roses that are low-growing, but can spread 4-8 ft, depending on the variety. They can quickly cover an area with attractive blooms.

They bloom over a long period of time, with a wide variety of colors available. They have shallow, spreading roots that help prevent erosion, while also making the area a spot of beauty. Often Rambler roses will be used for this purpose, to help stabilize soil on slopes.

Carpet roses are noted for their lavish blooms, abundant healthy foliage, and good disease resistance.

Some of the favorite roses include the Meidiland series of roses. These are Floribunda roses that have a low growth habit, and are hardy, easy to care rose plants.
