Rosa PINK FLOWER CARPET ‘Noatraum’ : a garden tested hardy perennial plant supplied in a half litre pot

  • About this cultivar: Rosa PINK FLOWER CARPET ‘Noatraum’ is a 1985 German introduction (from Noack I think). It is a popular rose with excellent health. It bears large trusses of small, semi-double, bright pink flowers continuously throughout the summer. The growth is low and spreading.
  • Rosa is a woody perennial within the Rose family (Rosaceae). What is there to say? There are over 100 species and thousands of cultivars. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colours ranging from white through yellows and reds. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa.
  • Ornamental roses have been cultivated for millennia, with the earliest known cultivation known to date from at least 500 BC in Mediterranean countries, Persia, and China. In the early 19th century the Empress Josephine of France patronized the development of rose breeding at her gardens at Malmaison. As long ago as 1840 a collection numbering over one thousand different cultivars was recorded at Abney Park in England.
  • As you may have guessed it is hard to be general about growing Roses. However, rest assured that all the roses we sell have been trialled and grown in our own wet clay soil garden at Ballyrobert in either full-sun or part-shade. We’ve chosen the ones that do best with us. Hopefully that should give you a bit of confidence or guidance!

• Plants are sold in half litre sized pots (9cm pots that are nearly pint sized, about 520ml in capacity).
• All the cultivars we sell have been grown and tested in our own garden (which is an RHS partner garden open to the public).
• When your plants arrive they can usually be planted straight out after soaking in water for 3 or 4 minutes. A good rule of thumb; make the soil level of the pot level with the rest of your border when planting out. Another rule of thumb; nearly all our plants will grow in indirect sunlight; we are in the British Isles after all. Another rule of thumb (!); Plants usually do better in the ground, which is unsurprising because that where they can from! Containers are ok if plants are kept fed and watered during their growing months, and in a warmer place during the winter. Try not to over water!
• During the year plants can be in various states of growth. The same plant delivered in early spring could be much bigger or smaller if delivered in late spring. Please be aware of this when ordering or receiving them.
• Some plants may have their flowers and foliage cut back when we send them, and look a bit awful! Don’t worry, it is for their own good; some plants like to travel light. Similarly bulbs, rhizomes, and some plants may be dormant or dying back for the year when you order them, they may even look dead – that is the nature of hardy perennials so don’t worry. Plant them out and wait, perhaps until next year, patience is a virtue in the hardy perennial game. Eventually your hardy perennials should grow back beautiful year after year. Again, this is the nature of hardy perennials – they die back and grow back, die back and grow back, year after year after year. Some years are better than others. You get the picture!
