British Columbia, Canada
Rose - Flower Carpet - Amber - Height about 30"
Planted this spring.
I live in British Columbia, Canada and our snowfall can be up to 17' of actual fall for the winter. It settles to just above top of leg height. This is the norm. Since we can get one foot overnight I am wondering if this rose should be pruned back before snowfall. Our temperature drops each winter for about a week, to -20, the norm being about -20C. We can also have -20 before snowfall on the odd year.
I shall mulch it, after a ground-freezing frost with one foot of garden soil.
An answer on pruning back this rose would be much appreciated as I have not grown such a low rose before. Mostly I have David Austin roses.
Thank you. Clementine
