|My flower beds have clay soil that has been very well amended with compost, etc. down to about 15 inches. After that it's just hard clay and lots of rock. I've planted two Monrovia coral flower carpet roses and am now worried that they won't survive. The site gets about 8 hours of sunlight. Other perennials in the beds are doing fine (geranium Rozanne, Salvia May Night, Moonbeam coreopsis, rhodies and azaleas in the back) but I don't know much (well, actually, anything) about roses and I'm worried that I've made a mistake buying them for this site.
