Growing Sunshine 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 30cm tall in early spring with shears or a hedge trimmer. This will ensure the best flower display, and prevent your plants from getting too big and floppy.

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. Sunshine was released in 1990, registration code NOAson, and is also sold as Celina.

It won 2eme Prix at the 2012 Bagatelle Rose Trials and an ADR-Sorte in 2006.
