Pruning
  • water dropWater

    The Pink Carpet Rose should be watered deeply but infrequently, to encourage a strong root system. Typically, watering once every week with approximately 1 to 1.5 gallons of water should suffice, varying based on weather conditions. Less water may be needed during rainy periods, but in the absence of rainfall, you may need to water twice per week. It is important to avoid overhead watering to prevent diseases; instead, water at the base of the plant. During hot summers, make sure the soil doesn't dry out completely between waterings.

  • sunLight

    The Pink Carpet Rose thrives in full sunlight, requiring at least six hours of direct sun each day. A spot that receives morning sunlight is ideal as it dries dew efficiently, reducing the risk of fungal diseases. They can tolerate partial shade, but flowering will be more prolific with full sun.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Pink Carpet Roses perform best in a range of temperatures and are generally hardy. The ideal growing conditions are between 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. These roses can survive temperatures down to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit in winter, but for healthy growth in the growing season, the 60 to 70 Fahrenheit range is preferred.

  • scissorsPruning

    Prune Pink Carpet Roses in early spring to shape the plant and remove dead or diseased wood. They benefit from pruning to encourage air circulation and new growth which results in more flowers. After the first frost, cut back up to one third of the plant to prepare it for winter. Deadhead spent flowers regularly during the blooming season to encourage continuous blooming.

  • plantRepotting

    Pink Carpet Roses, being primarily outdoor plants, do not require frequent repotting. Instead, they can be lifted and replanted every few years to rejuvenate the soil and address any overcrowding if they are planted in garden beds.

  • water dropsHumidity & Misting

  • circleLife cycle

    The Pink Flower Carpet Rose begins its life as a dormant bare-root plant or potted nursery specimen. After planting, the rose emerges from dormancy in spring, developing a strong root system and foliage. By late spring to early summer, the first flush of vibrant pink blooms appears, which will repeat in cycles throughout the growing season if spent flowers are removed (deadheading). In fall, the plant prepares for dormancy by slowing growth and potentially producing hips, though this is often minimal in carpet roses. Winter is a period of dormancy where the plant conserves energy and requires little care, although in colder regions, some protection might be necessary. Come spring, the cycle repeats with new growth and the return of lush foliage and abundant flowering.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The most popular method of propagation for the Rosa Pink Flower Carpet, commonly known as Ground Cover Rose, is by semi-hardwood cuttings. This process involves taking a cutting of the rose that has matured to a semi-hardwood state, typically during the summer or early autumn. The cutting, usually about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm) long with several leaves, is snipped just below a leaf node. The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end is often dipped into a rooting hormone powder to encourage root growth. This prepared cutting is then placed in a well-draining soil mix, ensuring that at least 2 or 3 nodes are below the surface. It's then covered with a plastic dome or bag to maintain high humidity around the cutting, and placed in a bright, indirect light until roots develop, which usually takes several weeks. Once the cuttings have rooted, they can be transplanted to a more permanent location in the garden.
