This rose is very vigorous, and a good choice as a ground cover, or if you choose, the arching canes can be trained up a trellis. You'll get abundant bloom with good repeat.
The bush covers itself with creamy-white, ruffled flowers that continue all season, well into the Fall. The glossy, dark green foliage really set the flowers off. They are considered one of the finest landscaping roses. These landscape roses are very disease resistant, and very hardy.
Plant them in the front of your garden, but give them plenty of room to spread. I planted mine to close to the edge of the bed, and now I have to constantly prune them back, because they grow out into the walkway.
Seafoam roses are also great roses to plant in an all-white garden, or a garden that is viewed at night. If you plant them around your patio, you'll be amazed at how beautiful they are when viewed at dusk. The white flowers seem to glow!
