ENGLISH ROSES

These roses are crosses of Old Garden Roses with modern hybrids.  The results are repeat blooming roses with the old rose characteristics of full, lush blossoms that are wonderfully fragrant, along with shrubby growth habit.

‘Baby Blanket.’  Groundcover Rose.  Touch as nails— needs no coddling!  Mounds of dense foliage are profusely covered by delicate pink blooms.  Gives quick wide spread coverage.  Height 3’.  Spread 5’.

 

‘Blushing Knock Out.’  As remarkable as its carefree namesake ‘Knock Out’. Fabulous light pink petals mature into soft shell pink as the blooms age. This beauty produces masses of flowers from spring to late fall and even blooms in the shade. It thrives in heat and humidity and never needs spraying. It makes a striking hedge, backdrop to a perennial garden, or a standout specimen.

 

‘Butterfly’ Antique Rose, R. mutabilis.  Like a butterfly, this vigorous China rose has bright orange buds that open into clusters of single, buff-yellow flowers, which eventually change from orange to crimson. Flowers open sequentially so all colors appear at once. The plant grows 4 to 10 feet tall and 6 feet wide.

'Drift Roses.' From the same people who gave us the 'Knock Out' rose series comes the next big thing for small gardens. Like 'Knock Outs', Drift Roses are repeat-bloomers that are tough, disease resistant, winter hardy and virtually maintenance-free.

 

Drift Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. They are tough and disease resistance along with having a well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature. Continuously blooming from spring to frost (bloom cycle about every 5-6 weeks), they are naturally dwarf, with very attractive foliage.

 

Colors include ‘Apricot,’ ‘Peach,’ 'Pink,' ‘Red,’ and the heavy petaled ‘Sweet Drift,’ a clear pink whose flower clusters seem to float atop its dark green glossy foliage. The large clusters of roses are so profuse they completely cover the shrubs.
 

Drift Roses only grow 12-18" but spread 2-3'. Great low growing habit, disease resistance and ease of care makes Drift Roses a top choice for low-maintenance areas. Perfect in front of the garden, as a low growing specimen, or spilling over walls. Excellent groundcover for slopes. Performs best in full sun.

 

‘Flower Carpet’ Groundcover Rose.  Profuse blooms of pink, white, red, apricot or yellow on healthy, disease resistant foliage.  Grows 2-3’ tall and 3-4’ wide.  No fancy pruning is needed.  Spreading dense habit gives solid coverage in beds, borders, foundations and valued as slope coverage.  The newest additions to these wonders is ‘Scarlet,’ disease free plants that produce thousands of velvety scarlet blossoms all season;  ‘Pink Supreme,’ an especially long bloomer of bubble-gum pink blooms, and ‘Amber,’ a truly stunning plant.  Each bush is covered in masses of soft orange yellow blooms, aging to soft pink with a blush of peach.   Up to 45 flowers and developing buds can be produced on a single stem.  A truly stunning plant.

 

Flower Carpet Roses are simple to grow and easy to maintain, requiring no spraying in the landscape. Simply cut back to 1/3rd its size once in late Winter or early Spring. All Flower Carpet roses are “self-cleaning” and require no fancy pruning or deadheading.  Plant 2-3 per square yard, for ground cover. For a stunning display, plant 13 in 3 square yards. Plant 24 inches apart to establish boundaries. Can be planted anytime during Spring, Summer or Fall.

‘Home Run.’   Superb rose that has non-stop deep red blossoms on disease free foliage.  3 1/2” flowers cover shrubs all season.  It forms a dense, well-branched, compact shrub to 3’.  Shade tolerant too.

 

‘Iceberg.’  This classic is considered the best white shrub rose of all time!  Long, pointed buds open to fragrant white flowers touched with pink in the center. The flowers are excellent cut as they have marvelous keeping qualities and are delightfully fragrant.  The explosion of blossoms begins in spring and continues well into fall.  Plants usually reach 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide.  Voted ‘Best in the World’ in 1983.

‘Rainbow Knock Out Rose.’  Vibrant color, profuse blooming and disease resistance makes this beauty one of the best.  It covers itself with pink-orange buds that open to coral pink blooms painted with rich yellow at the base.  Blossoms transform to light coral as they age.  Radiant in full bloom when the rainbow of stunning colors of buds, new flowers and mature blossoms appear at once.  Rainbow produces more flowers and is more disease resistant than others roses in the series.  Blossoms continue on and on all summer well into late autumn.  Grows 3 feet tall and wide.  An added bonus, is its delicious sweet scent.  Honored with the prize of 2007 All American Selection’s Winner by the American Rose Society for its outstanding qualities.
