Boasting a brand new coloration for its type, this sophisticated groundcover rose bears rich red blooms, each accented by a creamy white center. With a darker hue than has been seen in the Happy Trails series, Playful is sure to become a popular choice for covering bare sites in woodland gardens, landscape beds and along sunny front borders. Self-cleaning flowers have an old-fashioned rose appearance and emerge all summer long, emitting a light tea fragrance throughout the area. Like its predecessors, this newcomer is very easy to grow and requires little maintenance or special care. Rosa cv. 'WEKrahatjacor' PPAF
