Petal Pushers™ Groundcover Rose

Petal Pushers™ Groundcover Rose

Rosa 'JACloose' PP#19,484


Petal Pushers™ offers an abundance of huge clusters of bright bubblegum-pink blooms that are just divine. This low-growing shrub will carpet your rose garden and make it pretty-in-pink long after the other rose bushes have ceased blooming for the season.

The blooms open fully at 3½ to 4 inches wide and are packed with 40 or more petals! The electric pink blooms are fully double, but seem to have endless layers upon layers of soft, frilly petals whose patterns are reminiscent of Dave Austin?s English Roses. The blooms are held in large clusters, seemingly tossed about on the fresh, glossy dark green foliage.

A very compact shrub, Petal Pushers™ only grows to about 3 feet tall in full bloom, but quickly reaches 4 feet wide. The blooms appear a few weeks later than most roses, and continue well beyond summer. Why not have Petal Pushers™ as the "last standing rose" is your garden?

This groundcover rose loves full sun, but can thrive on just 4 to 6 hours of sunlight each day, which makes it a perfect fit for those who have borders that run through partially shaded areas as well as full sun. Petal Pusher™ is a heavy-blooming easy-grower with exceptional color, form, flower size, and bloom strength.

Roses Additional pruning tips for healthy, beautiful, productive roses:
  • Whether you're deadheading, removing dead wood, or performing an annual pruning, make sure your cuts are no more than ¼ inch (5 mm) above a bud, and slope the cut away from the bud, to prevent water from collecting on it.
  • Your cuts should always be clean, so keep your pruning shears sharp, and use pruning tools that are appropriately sized to whatever size stems you are cutting.
  • To encourage an open-centered form, cut to an outward-facing bud. To encourage upright growth on roses with a spreading habit, prune a few of the stems to inward-facing buds.
  • Prune any dieback to the healthy, white pith.
  • Remove dead or diseased stems, as well as any that cross or are spindly.
  • Your goal should be to have well-spaced stems that allow for a free flow of air.
  • If pruning an established plant, remove any old wood that is flowering poorly, and use a saw to get rid of old stubs that are no longer producing new shoots.
  • Other than climbing roses, you should prune newly planted roses hard, which encourages vigorous shoot production.
  • When removing suckers, trace them back to the roots from which they are growing, and simply take them off.

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.
