Rose Harlow Carr®  is an exceptional rose bred for a special event. This shrub features gorgeous, fully double, pink flowers that retain all of the heady perfume of an old English rose while blooming non-stop like a modern hybrid. The Harlow Carr® Rose was bred to commemorate the 200th birthday of the Royal Horticultural Society in Britain and is named after a demonstration garden in North East England. Rosa ‘Harlow Carr’ is a dependable, long-blooming shrub that produces flowers all of the way to the ground. 

The heavenly, spicy, old-world fragrance of Harlow Carr® makes this rose best planted near a walkway, under a bedroom window, or near outdoor seating areas. Harlow Carr® is fully resistant to black spot. The mass of flowers that tumble over Harlow Carr® bloom from June to September and entice native bees and other beneficial pollinators to visit your garden. Although deer browsing can be a problem in wooded areas, Harlow Carr® rebounds quickly from random deer pruning, producing more foliage and flower buds to fill in empty spots.  

Harlow Carr® English Rose Care

Plant Harlow Carr® in a location with well-draining soil that is also moisture retentive. Amend any heavy soil with organic compost so that it drains well, and mulch annually with shredded leaves, arborist chips, or more compost. 

Keeping roses well watered is important for a good flower display. Adding drip irrigation or soaker hoses at the time of planting will make future watering easier and more efficient. Allow for 1 inch of water a week during the growing season, taking into account natural precipitation. 

All English shrub roses require regular fertilizing. Apply a granular feed for roses early in the spring as the new foliage is emerging and then again when the flower buds begin to form. These two feedings will be plenty to support healthy growth until the shrubs go dormant in the fall. 

Shrub roses require minimal pruning to maintain a dense and pleasing shape. Prune in late winter to remove spent canes from the previous season and any winter damage. Cut dead, diagonal, or diseased canes all of the way to a main branch or all of the way to the ground for the oldest canes. Remove spent flowers as needed. Follow the bloom stem all of the way back to a pair of leaves and make a clean cut just above them. This will help to keep the overall shape of the shrub compact. When cutting stems for arranging, make your cuts as you would when deadheading.

Harlow Carr® English Rose Spacing

The rounded shrub shape of Harlow Carr® tops out at 4 feet tall and wide, making it a great choice for smaller garden areas or even growing in a planter. Space shrubs 40 inches apart to create a dense hedge or mass planting. Potted roses will require a container with at least a 20-inch diameter and a heavy or wide bottom for stability.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
