The Pink Bells Rose produces a profusion of rose pink colored ground cover roses on an arching, low growing rose bush.
It is very suitable for large gardens, as this rose grows about 2' high, with a spread of around 4-5' wide. It will grow much larger in warmer climates.
The pretty pink roses are floret formed with around 35 petals. They are the most beautiful when fully opened. (They remind me of the Fairy rose, only a darker pink color)
Pink Bells rose is once blooming, but has a long season of bloom. The blooming goes from early through late summer. The first flush is the strongest, then the blooms appear intermittently all season.

This very floriferous ground cover rose has small flowers that are crammed full of petals.
The first flush of flowers is an amazing profusion of bright pink blooms in cool or overcast weather, that fade to a paler pink after they are opened, They retain a darker shade on the petal backs.
The rose flowers on Pink Bells come in very large clusters that stand up well to the rain. They are said to be 'weather proof' roses that thrive on being neglected, even to the point of not needing to be watered! (I'll certainly keep mine watered at least through it's first season)
The densely branched bush is covered in semi glossy leaves that are healthy growing.
Although Pink Bells only flowers once a season, I find it worth growing. I hope to order one next spring. I will keep you posted on it..
