Comments Although it is by no means the first rose to be well suited to serving as a groundcover rose, this is reputed to be the first bred with that intention. Both parents are rampant growers with ironclad health records and unusually high floral production. So it is of little suprise that this rose manages to do the same. It manages to completely cover itself with single white flowers. It rarely gets taller than a foot high, but it can stretch out to ten feet across. It might be an ideal rose for a woodland clearing or to use in place of some less foliferous plant in open woodland.
