Flower Carpet® Rose ‘Scarlet’

Easy-care Flower Carpet roses are extraordinarily low maintenance and have exceptional disease resistance. Once established, their well-developed root system means they’re drought and low-water tolerant; surface roots take up available surface water, while deeper roots access lower-level water in drought conditions. Award-winning Flower Carpet ‘Scarlet’ blooms for months and requires no fancy pruning or chemicals to keep it thriving. Hardy in USDA Zones 5–10, it’s available at independent garden centers and most box stores.
