A well proven cultivar of landscape rose, marked with long and abundant flowering, limited height and resistance to adverse conditions. Overwinters well.


WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: A low, compact shrub of fast-spreading shoots. Flowers small, double, white, gathered in large inflorescences. Flowering starts at the end of June. It does not produce fruit, hence flowering lasts long and new buds appear successively until late autumn. Shoots are straight at the beginning but with development of the inflorescences tend to arch sideways under their weight. Leaves small, green, leathery, glossy.

HOW IT GROWS: Reaches 0.6 m height and similar width; thickens fast.

WHERE TO PLANT: The plant is undemanding, robust and easy to maintain. Thrives in fertile, well-drained soil, in sunny sites. Plants grown from their own roots do not cause problems with the rootstock shoots. Fully frost hardy (zone 6).

HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Before planting immerse the plant container in water for 10-30 min. Place the root ball in a 40 x 40 x 40 cm hole with a 10 cm layer of well-rotten manure or compost, 0.5-1 cm deeper than it was before. Planting density: 3-6 pcs./m². Fill the hole with fertile soil. Does not require spring pruning. The only necessary procedure is the removal of dead and damaged shoots.

HOW TO APPLY: Blends well with low shrubs, perennials and vines. Perfectly suited for urban conditions – grown along roads, paths and in roundabouts – as well as for container cultivation. Spreads fast, covering the ground with green and white carpet of leaves and flowers.

ORIGIN: Introduced in the market by Wirruna Nursery, Australia, 1988.
