The Flower Carpet Rose should be watered deeply once a week, providing approximately 1 to 1.5 gallons of water each time for a mature plant, ensuring the moisture reaches the root zone. During hot or dry weather, it may require watering twice a week. The soil should be kept evenly moist but not waterlogged. Mulching around the roses can help retain soil moisture and reduce the need for frequent watering. It's important to avoid overhead watering to prevent disease; instead, water at the base of the plant.
The Flower Carpet Rose thrives best in full sun, meaning it needs at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily to perform well. Plant it in a location where it can receive unfiltered sunlight throughout the day. However, in extremely hot climates, providing some afternoon shade can help protect the blooms from intense heat.
Flower Carpet Roses are quite resilient and can survive in a range of temperatures but perform best when daytime temperatures are between 70°F to 85°F. They can generally handle temperatures as low as 20°F but may need protective mulching in winter. Avoid planting in areas where winter temperatures frequently dip below this range without adequate protection.
Pruning Flower Carpet Roses is mainly done to shape the plant, encourage new growth, and remove dead or diseased wood. It's best to prune in late winter or early spring, just before new growth starts. Prune lightly, cutting back about a third of the previous year's growth. Remove any dead branches and thin out the plant to allow air circulation, which helps prevent disease.
The best soil mix for Flower Carpet Red Velvet roses should be well-draining, rich in organic matter, and have a pH of 6.0 to 6.5. A mixture of loam, compost, and coarse sand is ideal for optimal growth and flowering.
Flower Carpet Red Velvet roses, being landscape roses, do not typically require repotting as they are usually planted directly in the garden. In containers, repot every 2-3 years to refresh the soil.

- Life cycle
The Rosa Flower Carpet Red Velvet begins its life as a dormant, bare root or potted plant, typically planted in early spring or late fall. It then enters a germination phase, where buds break dormancy and sprout into new growth when temperatures become suitable. Following germination, it goes through a vegetative stage, developing a robust root system, foliage, and stems. The plant then reaches the flowering stage, usually in late spring to summer, where it produces its characteristic red velvet blooms in abundance. After pollination, if it occurs, roses set hips (seed pods), entering a reproductive stage where seeds develop. Finally, as temperatures drop, the plant will go into a period of dormancy, dropping its leaves and preserving energy for the next growing season.
Spring to Summer
Propogation: The Rosa Flower Carpet Red Velvet is most commonly propagated through stem cuttings. This is due to their ability to form roots relatively easily from mature plant material. To propagate using this method, a gardener should take a cutting of about 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm) from a healthy, disease-free branch during the plant’s dormant season, which is generally in late winter or early spring. The lower leaves of the cutting should be removed, and the cut end can be dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root growth. The cutting is then placed in a well-draining soil mixture and kept moist until roots have developed, at which point it can be transplanted into the garden or a more permanent container. This method is simple and cost-effective, making it accessible for both amateur and professional gardeners.
