Rosa 'KORconta' is a vigorous rose variety that is often sold as a tall groundcover due to its form, which is to grow more horizontal than vertical.  It is generally disease resistant, however, ensure that good air circulation is provided.  That can be accomplished by pruning to allow air to flow through the branches.  Pruning is best completed in late winter to early spring.  

The fragrant 2" flowers are white with a yellow center, single-petaled and loosely cupped.  Blooming will repeat all summer.  

Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems:  Susceptible to black spot, powdery mildew, rust and rose rosette.  Good air circulation will help curb these diseases.  Insect issues can include aphids, beetles, thrips, borers, scale and leafhoppers.
