Use in the back of perennial borders to intensify season long color. Plant in masses or quantities in irregular groups for a large scale cover that blocks weeds. Great in pairs to flank an entry, steps or gate. Plant in mass to create a low, semi-formal hedge or to clean up unattractive paving edges around porches and patios.

  • History & Lore
    History:
    Introduced by Monrovia in 2017.
    Lore:
    The signature genus Rosa of the Rosaceae family was classified by Linnaeus in the 18th century and today contains over one hundred species, all originating in the Northern Hemisphere. From the wild species there have evolved thousands of hybrids and forms with many branches in the ancestral tree. Roses are among the most ancient ornamentals in cultivation. Today's repeat blooming roses derive their remondant characteristics from the China tea roses and hybrid perpetuals.
