Welcome to the World of Rose Gardening or Rose Gardening World.  Take time and smell the roses.  Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.  Here at Rose Gardening World, you’ll find rose articles that will educate you about roses – its history, rose culture, rose profiles and even rose verses all in one place.  So visit Rose Gardening World often.

This compact, repeat flowering shrub rose bears a profusion of double pink blooms with white reverse. At the first flush in early June, the plant is covered with blooms. The pink bloom is medium size, has 26 petals and has a slight fragrance. It has a white center with yellow stamens. They come singly or in clusters followed by dull red hips. The leaves are small, glossy, deep green and resistant to disease. The plant is low growing reaching a height of 3 ft. It can bloom continuously until winter.  I have two plants in my garden, both planted at either side of the parterre beds. Carefree Wonder is an All-America Rose Selection in 1991.
