Not sure if I have mentioned lately how fond I am of the carpet rose 'Amber'. I do like the white and pink carpet roses because they stay close to the ground, are disease resistant, self cleaning and just easy in general. I find the yellow one to grow too tall for my taste, making it less carpet-y than I like. The amber one falls somewhere in between the yellow and the pink ones but I do love the color in addition to all the other attributes it shares with the rest of the carpet rose family. The blooms grow in complete little bouquets that make flower arrangements easy to assemble and they last for about a week in a vase. A nice accent color among my blues and purples and definitely a keeper.
