    Design IdeasLow profile and spreading habit make these the ideal filler plants for almost any application in full sun. Use to flesh out the front of the aging shrub or perennial border. Group in irregular combinations or mass as a true groundcover to compound the potent floral color display. Exceptional choice for lining the edge of a walk or driveway and filling the narrow strip that divides front yards. A beautiful choice for banks and slopes as coverage and erosion control. In traditional rose gardens, plant among taller shrub or cutting roses to tidy up the ground plain underneath. Outstanding in white French boxes or very large terra cotta pots. Makes particularly elegant potted patio tree on porch or terrace.

  • History & Lore
    History:
    Developed out of a 25 year breeding program by Dr. Werner Noack of Noack Rosen, a German rose breeder famous for his commitment to disease- resistant hybrids. Practically maintenance-free yet extremely floriferous and vigorous plants can produce as many as 2000 flowers per year! This shrubby groundcover series of sterile roses includes five colors -- pink, white, coral, red and appleblossom -- that produce a limited number of hips making deadheading unnecessary.
