Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose

Item #30507


Groundcover Habit | Hybrid Tea Beauty

When chilly autumn breezes begin to blow and all your other roses have packed it in for the season, you might just have Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose making a final big show on the garden floor. This groundcover shrub rose is a tireless repeater, known for being the "last rose standing" in many a fine garden. Why not make Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose part of yours, too.

Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose is a magnificent performer, just 3 feet tall in full bloom but quickly spreading about 4 feet wide. The bright pink blooms are fully double, quartered and whorled in the form associated with David Austin's English Roses. Each measuring about 2 to 3 inches across and packed with 40 or more petals, the flowers arise in big clusters on stems a foot long. So beautiful, like bouquets tossed among the fresh, glossy dark green leaves of this dense spreading shrub.

Best of all, Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose is prepared to bloom in flushes over a very long summer-into-fall season. Even if you do not have it in full sun, Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose will flower dependably in 4 to 6 hours of sunlight a day. This is ideal for those of us who have borders that run through partially shaded areas as well as full sun. You can carpet the whole garden with this vigorous shrub rose.

We are especially proud of Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose because it is the product of our own Keith Zary, introduced in 2007 as part of the Ultimate Rose Collection. Zary bred this groundcover from a complicated line: the seed parent is a cross of a seedling and Footloose, while the pollen parent is Roller Coaster x seedling. The fine craftsmanship tells: Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose is the ideal mix of color, form, flower size, bloom strength, and shade tolerance. You will find Petal Pushers Groundcover Rose an exceptional presence in your landscape.

Arrived. Great start....

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought 4 of these to plant on north side of a picket fence. A problem area in my rose garden. As expected from J&P, these were good, top notch quality and healthy upon unpacking. In ground for a month and taking off nicely.

A delight! I bought this on sale last summer, so planted late. Took off immediately with startling pink blooms, healthy green foliage. And it kept going until mid-November. It was in a planter box with other mature plants nearby. No mildew, black spot, or other yuck, despite the hot, humid Virginia weather. Looks as if it has weathered winter well, and I can't wait to see this little darling again this spring.

Love it

I ordered 3 plants and got only one. :( After 2 months (the first week of July) this plant was blooming. In October I had a fully developed rose bush that was blooming until frost. :) We have a mild winter this year and I hope the bush will survive.
