The Red Drift® Rose has the classic color of red roses, but in a multitude of miniature flowers on a low, mounding bush. It is remarkable for its disease resistance too, needing no sprays against any of the major rose diseases. It flowers continuously from early summer to frost, with each succession of blooms fading away to be replaced by more and yet more. The flowers are a vibrant red color, fully-double, and the bush spread between 2 and 3 feet wide, while staying only 18 inches tall. It is a perfect flowering shrub for small gardens or small spaces, as well as looking beautiful planted in drifts between other smaller shrubs in a larger bed. With its slightly-cascading habit, it also looks perfect planted at the top of a wall, where it will cover and soften the hard edges of the bricks. It grows well in containers and planters, so you don’t even need a garden to enjoy these blooms all summer.

  • Classic deep red double flowers
  • Blooms continuously
  • Spreading mound form great for drift planting
  • Perfect for any garden, and planters too
  • Resistant to all the major rose diseases

Plant the Red Drift Rose in a sunny spot, as full sun will give you the most flowers. Any soil, including clay, suits it, although it may not be as vigorous in dry, sandy soils. Enrich the soil with organic material when you plant, and use a rose fertilizer regularly throughout the season. With its resistance to disease assured, you can relax and enjoy this low-maintenance plant, just as you would any other flowering shrub. A quick trim in early spring is all that is needed to keep it healthy and vigorous. With this rose, you get all the beauty but none of the work usually associated with growing roses.
