Drift® Groundcover Roses

Drift Groundcover Roses

One of the most exciting rose introductions in recent years has been Drift® Groundcover Roses. From the same people who introduced The Knock Out® Family of Roses, Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniatures. From the groundcover roses they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited a well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature. The low, spreading habit of Drift® Roses is perfect for small gardens and combination planters. They brighten borders, fill empty spaces, and spread delicately around established plants.

Drift® Roses are low-maintenance and will reward gardeners with endless color all season long. Continuously blooming from spring to frost, they are naturally dwarf with very attractive foliage. They require no special care, but for best performance, it is recommended that they be cut back every year in early spring after the last threat of frost has passed.Drift® Roses have good resistance to rust, powdery mildew and black spot and are winter hardy to zone 4.
