This section gives a selection of low-growing roses, in the main reaching two feet or less. These are particularly useful for very small modern gardens. Even here, a few larger roses will help to vary the height and add style.
This is a pretty little rose, bearing semi-double, light pink flowers with golden stamens, held against dark, glossy foliage. The growth is spreading and nicely rounded. A very popular variety; it was named for the late Queen Mother's 90th birthday. Kordes, 1986.
Pale pink, pointed miniature buds, no larger than thimbles, of exquisite Tea Rose formation, which retain their beauty even when fully open. They are sweetly fragrant and repeat flower throughout the summer; the flowers borne singly on thin, wiry stems. It forms a short-jointed bush with small foliage. Ducher, c.1880.
