Scarlet Flower Carpet Rose Care
Plant this rose in full sun for best performance, providing it with at least 4 - 5 hours of direct sun. It is not particular about soil type or pH, although it does not tolerate waterlogged soil. Water it regularly during the growing season, and it will develop drought tolerance once the roots are established. Fertilize in the spring with a balanced, slow-release formula, and topdress the root zone with organic compost.
Cut this rose back by one-third of its size in early spring. Remove any dead or broken branches throughout the year to keep the shrub healthy.
Scarlet Flower Carpet Rose Spacing
Space Scarlet flower roses approximately 2 feet apart when planting several to form a dense hedge. Increase the spacing to 3 feet if a gap between plants is desired. For potted roses, choose a wide container at least 24 inches in diameter to accommodate the spread of the roots, and size up every year.
