‘Flower Carpet Red’ Rose
‘Flower Carpet Red’ Rose for Ruby Tuesday
While wandering around the nursery yesterday I came upon this red rose. It was a little strange since it had been grown on a standard and into a little tree. I thought these roses were for ground covers. Recently ‘Flower Carpet White’ was posted here. These are good performing roses that are hardy and for the most part trouble free.
