Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
|Seen here growing alone before a verdant backdrop, Eyepaint shows what it can do to attract attention. It produces hundreds or thousands of scarlet flowers with white eyes. They are nicely spaced about the plant. It produces over a long interval. And it does so without requiring much attention.
Interestingly, Eyepaint frequently gives the impression that all the flowers are facing the viewer, bringing an extra layer of meaning to the name.
The plant is very nicely branched and very well clad in healthy foliage. ARS members rate it a very strong 8.3.
