I Love the Drift Series of Roses

Jan 27, 2023 | Love This!

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.

In this garden I planted a Sweet Drift (pale pink) in the rear, a single-flowering Pink Drift (on the right) and a Coral Drift, in the center. Here they are in June, flowering with the lady’s mantle.

Drift roses are perfect for growing in with perennials in a sunny garden.
