The groundcover roses made easy
2 gallon container
Drift® Roses are a clever cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. They inherited the best of both worlds, being tough and disease resistant rebloomers, all in a manageable size that thrives in full sun.
You’ll love yours in any space really, but might try on a slope, to fill in around other established perennials, even in containers. Continuous blooming with green foliage. Disease resistant but prune to allow for air flow which helps prevent black spot fungus.
Bloom time: Late spring through early fall.
Height x width: 1 ½ ‘ – 2 ½ ‘ depending on color
Light: Full sun
Soil: Evenly moist but well-drained soils are best. A 2-3″ layer of shredded bark mulch is recommended in all areas, all year round. We recommend Altums Soil Amendment and Elements soil additive to improve planting areas.
Pruning: Early spring. Cut out any dead branches and select interior branches to allow for better air circulation. Prune back one-third to one-half of plant to remove any winter kill on tips and to encourage new growth.
Water: 2-3 times weekly until established.
Fertilizer: Beginning in March or April, fertilize with Fertilome Rose and Flower Food with Systemic Insecticide and apply every 8 weeks to keep your roses looking their best. Stop fertilizing in late summer/fall as your roses prepare for their winter slumber.
