    SPRING 2009

    Flower Carpet Amber
    The first Flower Carpet rose released in New Zealand in the early 90’s took the country
    by storm, selling in its thousands. Flower Carpet Pink marked the beginning of a
    new era in rose growing. It was tough, flowered for months and didn’t require fussy
    spraying or pruning. Nearly twenty years on, the latest, and haled as the greatest, in
    the Flower Carpet series is Flower Carpet Amber. Amber possesses all the attributes
    of its seven predecessors. But it’s even tougher, more disease resistant and performs
    beautifully throughout the country - even in hot, humid climates. Amber is one of the
    earliest Flower Carpets to flower, producing masses of blooms from early spring until late
    autumn. And with its gorgeous soft colours, ranging from rich golden amber to soft pinky-
    apricot, it’s bound to create a whole new fashion era in the garden. Order now for October delivery.
