Ground Cover Roses basically describes roses of stature that are wider than they are tall. They are sometimes called Procumbent Roses. Some are truly ground hugging whereas others are bushier. Newer varieties are more remontant. Most are excellent landscaping roses but few prove useful for weed suppression.
Can be left unpruned until established. In subsequent years prune to suit when dormant. Large scale plantings can be tackled with a hedge trimmer.
