Name: Drift Roses
Type of Plant: Low-growing, disease resistant, and repeat flowering shrub roses from Star Roses and Plants
Why I Love This Plant: I love these roses because they fit in well in many landscapes and gardens. Because they are lower-growing than many shrub roses, they fit better in foundation plantings, flower beds, and even out by the mailbox. Like most landscape roses, they don’t have to be deadheaded in order to rebloom through the summer…although sometimes I do shear off the old flowers to hurry the process up.
A Word to the Wise: Like all roses, you’ll want to amend the area where you plant with compost or composted manure, fertilize with an organic rose food, and take care to water deeply less often.
