‘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.

Class: Floribunda, Shrub.
Bred By: Werner Noack, Germany (1986)
Petal Count: Semi-double (9-16 petals)
Fragrance: None
Parentage: Seed: 'Irish Wonder' × 'Paprika' (floribunda, Tantau, 1957)
Pollen: 'Flower Carpet'

Lovely rose and lovely colour. My garden is overflowing with old fashioned pink ones at the moment. What is more beautiful and delicate than a rose?!

Flowers seem to be a very popular topic today. Lovely shot. I have four of these plants in our front yard and they are just filled with blooms. Have a great Ruby Tuesday.
