On The Garden Path

Coming soon: A rose that will have gardeners thinking pink


| January 2008


If you're looking for a lasting relationship with a rollicking, big-hearted rose that looks great and has no hang-ups, check out Flower Carpet Pink Supreme - the newest addition to the family of award-winning Flower Carpet groundcover roses.

This rose has it all: big, beautiful clusters of blooms; a low-growing, compact, beautifully shaped bush; bright, glossy leaves; a super-long bloom season that provides big color from late spring through frost; and tremendous natural vigor against common rose blights, such as black spot and mildew.

Noteworthy qualities

Flower Carpet Pink Supreme is notable for its glossy leaves and broad clusters of fresh-faced double flowers in a pleasing shade of pink. Masses of bright roses cover the bush, exhibiting a delightful range of color with cherry-red buds and bright pink flowers (often nicely flecked with white at the heart) that mature to a warm pink. Spent flowers fall cleanly away, leaving the bush fresh and clean all season long.

A mature bush can produce up to 2,000 blossoms, and the outstanding color display rides atop a full bush with glossy foliage brimming with natural vigor and good looks, making it an outstanding garden shrub.

Pink Supreme is the eighth color in the popular Flower Carpet series, which also includes Pink, White, Appleblossom, Coral, Red, Yellow and Scarlet. It is the second in the Next Generation of Flower Carpet series, which are products of the newest breeding by Noack Rosen, the German rose breeders famous for their impressive disease-resistant hybrids and developers of the Flower Carpet roses. The first in the Next Generation of Flower Carpet series was Flower Carpet Scarlet.
