Thanks for the information, Soni! I always love your original photos. I'm going to put carpet roses in our yard. Would you recommend the same treatment for them?

Hello Robin, To get bigger blooms for carpet roses in your yard, I recommend following the above tips plus:

1. Grow your carpet roses in full sunlight to get big bloom flowers, though carpet roses also known as wonder roses can grow in partial sunlight but this will not yield great flowers.

2. This typical variety of roses is very popular among gardeners due to its high disease resistance but still carpet roses can be attacked by aphids and Japanese beetles and when this happens use of any insecticide, either conventional or organic can be tried.

3. For more tips on care of carpet roses in USA, you can visit this hub written by Mr. Williams in your area, http://hubpages.com/living/Tips-On-Caring-For-Carp...
