|I bought some ground cover roses at Home Depot this morning but there was no tag with them. I can't find them anywhere on this site. What info can you give me about these? How far out do they spread? Their heighth? Do I fertilize them like bud and bloom roses? Can I plant them with hibiscus? I'd assume they are perrenials, but are they? (Not portulaca or purslane) Thanks a bunch!

|Groundcover roses are perennials and they usually grow from 16-20 inches in height and spread out about 3' in diameter. They can be fed and watered just like your other roses and you can prune them early each spring just as new growth begins. Pruning will help even them out and promote lots a new flowers. You can plant them with hibiscus if you'd like.
