#ProPlantTips for Care
Drift Roses perform beautifully all across the country. They take extreme cold, humidity, and even scorching high temps. Protect your investment by giving them the planting conditions they need.
The most important requirement is to give them a full sun location where they will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. They also need well-drained soil that won't retain water for long.
Use a container, or mound up additional soil 18 inches above your native soil line if you suffer from poor drainage. Plant Peach Drift Roses directly in that mound. Add a border to finish the look into a raised bed.
We always recommend Nature Hills Root Booster when planting to get your Roses off to the best start. Follow the directions on the package.
They need a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Add a 3 to 4-inch layer of mulch over the root system, and plan to reapply in spring. Over time, the mulch will break down to improve your soil!
Prune in early spring by simply cutting back last year's growth to 12 inches. Remove any broken, crossing, or winter damaged branches at that time. If you deadhead regularly, reblooming will be encouraged.
