Widely arching canes with deep green foliage produce a constant succession of sprays of small rich red double blossoms even in the winter greenhouse--although quite winter hardy in our Z6b. Interesting in large hanging baskets or cascading from large urns; but unrivaled as a constantly reblooming ground cover in full sun. These are well established plants. We have trialed dozens of trailing roses--this is the one with good dark glossy foliage and constant flushes of blossoms, even during hot summers.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
