Splash out on this vigorous variety, as it requires minimal care. It simply won't give you any fuss. The single blooms resemble wild roses, and these pretty plants are tough enough to handle extreme temperatures- both hot and cold.
Instead, you'll be treated to a delectable shade of rich, clear pink that fades to white in the middle with a yellow center. The flowers are perfectly contrasted against healthy, glossy green foliage. The plant produces an abundance of these pink blooms from spring until frost.
Pink Drift rose is low growing with distinctive mounded flowers that develop in clusters of 10 - 20 blooms. This gives an incredibly lush look.
And the best part? If you like butterflies, you'll love this plant. Each uptilted, single bloom gives a flat landing pad for them to land on and sip nectar.
You'll love the way the deep pink flowers, with a soft faded center, bloom in abundance throughout the season.
How to Use Drift Pink Rose in the Landscape
Drift Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniatures. From the groundcover parent, they kept their toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature.
Talk about a match made in heaven! These graceful, arching little shrub roses are disease resistant plants that will perform beautifully for you in the landscape.
This rose simply shines when planted in multiples. Use the Pink Drift Rose as a ground cover, mass planting, as a border, or as a container plant.
Plant them all along your front walkway for a cheery welcome or line a white picket fence with a tidy row of them.
The plants will fill in a large open space in a short amount of time. Plant 2 - 3 feet apart for a quick fill. Use it alone in a mass planting for a continuous color palate.
The Pink Drift will look great growing in a patio container. Plant up multiple containers of Pink Drift Roses as a breezy solution to decorate your patio.
Drift roses are wonderful in landscape beds or cascading over a wall to soften the look. Or, or mix it with other flowering perennial plants. There are no bad combinations with this fabulous selection.
#ProPlantTips for Care
The Pink Drift Rose is very low maintenance and disease resistant. It will tolerate a wide range of soils and climates. They are drought tolerant when established but can also withstand moist soils, as long as the drainage is good.
When you first plant your Pink Drift Rose, cut back the entire plant evenly to increase the number of lateral branches and encourage a denser plant.
