Valued for its unusual prostrate habit, Rosa Grouse has the softest pink, almost white, heart-shaped petals. Appearing in clusters, the small blooms are open, reminiscent of the early form of the dog rose, revealing a mass of golden stamens, almost hellebore-like, which attract native pollinators, especially bees.

Please note, our roses are available to purchase all year round, so depending on the time of year your rose may either arrive in bloom or have been pruned or deadheaded appropriately for the season.


Grown by David Austin, this remarkable ground cover rose was bred in 1984 by the highly respected German rose breeder Kordes. It does, however, present a difficult decision: deadhead spent flowers for more blooms or leave them and enjoy a remarkable display of brilliant, red rose hips in the autumn?

  • Prostrate rose grown for ground cover, flowers, scent and hips
  • Flowering period: repeat, from late spring to first frost
  • Fully hardy
  • Classic plant for herbaceous border and small garden
  • Enriched, well-drained soil
  • Any aspect
  • Full sun or partial shade
  • Exposed or sheltered

Dig a hole larger than the root ball and loosen surrounding soil, sprinkle with Mycorrhizal Fungi to promote root growth, position rose, infill and water well. Deadhead spent blooms to promote new buds or leave for spectacular rose hips.


Medium to strong musk
