Ground Cover

This type of rose was developed mainly for mass amenity planting, when in the late 20th century, traditional hybrid tea and floribunda rose varieties were falling out of favour with gardeners and landscapers as they are often labour and chemical intensive plants susceptible to pest and disease problems. So-called 'Ground Cover' (or 'Landscape' roses) were developed to fill the need for a garden rose that offers colour form and fragrance, but was also low maintenance and easy to care for. As their title suggests these varieties have a low-growing habit of 60cms or less, are repeat flowering, with good disease and pest resistance, and need only minimal pruning. They can be used under other roses, in the shrubbery or down one of those difficult banks! (Varieties include: 'Max Graf', and 'Temple Bells').
