(Coral Beauty Rose, Polyantha Rose)
Polyantha roses are reblooming shrub roses with low growing to spreading habits. The cultivar 'Coral Beauty' is a fine selection that produces large sprays of small, single coral flowers all season.
This rose is frost hardy and grows best where provided with at least two months of winter chill. Like most roses, it prefers full to part sun, moist, perfectly drained soil and sites with good air flow. Plant it as a low growing hedge, in mixed borders or allow it to cascade over a stone wall.
