Flower Carpet® roses are the winner of over 25 GOLD and INTERNATIONAL rose
awards. Many times referred to as the "Wonder Rose", the Flower Carpet® ground cover
roses, or Carpet Roses, are some of the most popular roses available in the world today.
This is because of their long flowering period, easy care and exceptional disease
resistance and great drought tolerance.

The latest development in the Flower Carpet® ground cover roses is the Next
Generation series. Fifteen years of extra breeding have provided improved heat &
humidity tolerance and disease resistance in an already brilliant class of ground cover
roses. These include:

    Flower Carpet® Amber

Next Generation Flower Carpet roses have 15 years extra breeding, providing improved
heat and humidity tolerance and disease resistance in an already brilliant class of
groundcover roses. Provide masses of rich blooms from late spring to the latest stages
of fall and early winter, with rich glossy green foliage. There were developed by Noack
Rosen, the German rose-breeders known for breeding of the best disease resistant roses
in the world today.

True easy-care groundcover roses, both home gardeners and professional landscapers
will find Next Generation Flower Carpet roses simple to grow and easy to maintain,

KEY FEATURES UNIQUE TO SCARLET
In 2006, Scarlet won top marks for disease resistance and performance in the ADR, the
All Deutschland Rose Trials, considered the world's toughest test of rose performance.
Conducted over three years in 11 different test gardens, with each enforcing the ADR's
famous ban on spraying or other chemical support, roses must win or lose on natural
strength. Flower Carpet Scarlet won top honors for winter hardiness, flower performance
and above all, resistance against leaf diseases that can plague roses, such as black spot
and mildew.
