The most commonly available ground cover roses are those in the Flower Carpet series, available in a wide of colors. Several of the trademarked Meidiland roses, such as ?White Meidiland?, are sufficiently low growing to be used as ground covers.?Sea Foam?, a shrub rose, makes a fine ground cover about 3 ft. tall and 6 ft.wide, and some miniature roses have a pretty, sprawling habit. Several of the species roses and some of the climbing roses make good ground covers as well.

'Fire Meidiland' is a ground cover rose with red flowers. Grows 2-3 ft. high and up to 5-6 ft wide. 'Flower Carpet Red' is a ground cover rose with red flowers. Grows 2-3 ft. high and up to 4 ft. wide. 'Flower Carpet Scarlet' is a ground cover rose with scarlet color flowers. Grows 2-3 ft. high and up to 4 ft. wide. 'Flower Carpet Yellow' is a ground cover rose with yellow flowers. Grows 2-3 ft. high and up to 4 ft. wide.

Hope these suggestions are helpful.
