Description

Ruby Red Flower Carpet Rose Bushes. 3 Litre Pots.

Ruby is covered in clusters of small, semi-double, bright red flowers pretty much continuously from June to November. The dark green foliage is glossy. Spreading and bushy to 80m tall by up to 1m wide.

The disease resistant Flower Carpet series is a hit with town councils and urban gardeners for its low maintenance requirements, and high tolerance of both unpleasant roadside conditions and rough pruning.

Growing Ruby Flower Carpet Roses

Typically used in mass planting schemes, they will need watering in dry weather for their first two years. By their third summer, they will have put down deep roots and will be quite drought tolerant. 

You do not need to be careful when pruning them. Go easy on your new plants while they establish for a year or two, and then slash them down to 20cm tall in early spring with shears or a hedge trimmer. This will ensure the best flower display, but especially in full sun, it is not essential, and your plants will still bloom well if you don't bother to cut them back every year.

These roses are pretty good at dropping their spent flowers, so there is little need to dead headed them.

Did You Know? 

The hugely successful Flower Carpet Collection is mostly the work of Reinhard Noack at Noack-Rosen, who picked up where his father Werner (1927-1994) left off. Ruby was bred by Mr Noack Sr. and released in 1986, registration code NOAfeuer, and is also sold as Heidefeuer.
