Notes:
In his column Roses Abroad in the January 1998 issue of the American Rose magazine (pp.16-7), Sean McCann says this rose makes a great candidate for a hanging basket.


In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data was taken on well-established roses.


In his garden in Norfolk, Robert Wharton, of Whartons Nurseries Ltd., reports the best rose varieties in his garden are: 'Flower Carpet Pink', 'Flower Carpet Sunshine', 'Flower Carpet White', 'The Fairy', 'Arthur Bell', 'Bonica', 'Ballerina' and 'Jacques Cartier'.
