Interested in a bit more history behind the original eco-rose? Read on . . .
If you walked into a garden center 20 years ago, you’d have faced a sea of black and green plastic pots and small labels. Walk in today, and you’re hit with a blast of color and sophisticated retail marketing thanks, pretty much, to one pink rose.
The Flower Carpet rose is important for two reasons. It’s the first to be sold in a bright pink pot with large, informational labels. It’s also the first plant where everything hung on a performance promise that’s still honored to this day.
The promise was simple: it was an eco-friendly, easy-care plant that anyone could grow, gardener or not. With years of trials and testing before its release, Anthony Tesselaar and his team had made absolutely sure Flower Carpet would perform as described (easy to grow, no need for chemicals or difficult pruning) and then continued to develop additional colors, including the “Next Generation” varieties that have even stronger disease resistance and heat and humidity tolerance.
