Imagine eating buttery popcorn filled to the brim with shades of creamy-white and buttery-yellow. Not much changes when you imagine the Popcorn Drift® Rose (Rosa 'Novarospop' PP24773). Except, you might not want to eat the rose.
This beautiful, elegant rose blooms gold in the spring, then slowly transitions to a mix of soft yellows and whites.
The Popcorn Drift Rose basks in full sun, blooming continuously from early spring till first frost, which creates the perfect white and yellow flowers to admire for months at a time.
Not only do these flowers stand out on their own, but the dark green foliage creates a whimsical background for the pop of colors. In the beginning of the foliage's life, it starts off as a slight reddish tint, then maturing to a glossy, deep green.
The best part of the foliage is not its charming color or fullness, the best part is that the foliage is disease and pest resistant.
The Popcorn Drift Rose is a groundcover rose, hugging the ground with its consistent blooms. The blooms possess a 15-25 petal count, are relatively tight and emit a slight, gentle fragrance. The fragrance is most noticeable during mid-season.
One of the best features the Popcorn Drift Rose has to offer is an upright, yet gentle spread. This makes it the perfect flower for your garden. Order the Popcorn Drift Rose today! Be sure to order quickly, as these are sure to sell out quickly, being an exemplary rose.

Take advantage of the 1 - 2 foot height and use it as a ground cover. Along with that, you can plant the Popcorn Drift Rose to create edging and borders for your garden pathway. They are very versatile, as you can both mass plant them and container plant them.
Of course, the beautiful buttery-yellows and creamy-whites can be used as a focal point in your garden. Or, it is a great companion to other roses in your beloved rose garden.
The Popcorn Drift Rose is flawless in a cottage garden or when it is used as a low hedge. The possibilities are endless when planting this magnificent rose.
Give the Popcorn Drift Rose an ideal spot with full sun, where it will receive at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. The gorgeous colors will shine and glow in the sunlight.
The best soil for the sun-basking rose is moist and well-drained. Water is great for the Popcorn Drift Rose, but if the water pools rather than percolates through the soil quickly, the poor roots won't be able to breathe!
The best advice with well-drained soil is to use raised beds. If you would like to learn more about well-drained soil, read our blog post here.
The Popcorn Drift Rose will grow best in a mildly acidic to neutral soil--around 6.0 to 7.0 on the pH scale. This is a common pH for garden soils, so no need to worry. You can, however, test your soil pH to measure if it is suitable for your Popcorn Drift Rose.
The Popcorn Drift Rose should be fertilized when planted in the spring with a controlled release or slow release fertilizer. To enhance the blooms in the fall, another application of fertilizer would be perfect around the fall season.
Along with being fed, they need a regular watering schedule during the first growing season so it establishes an extensive root system. The extensive root system will provide superb exposure to nutrients and water in the soil.
Be sure not to overwater your Popcorn Drift Rose, as too much water can lead to harmful plant diseases like root rot.
After the first growing season, older plants can tolerate occasional droughts pretty well, but we always recommend that you care for your investment and provide the rose with a nice shower when needed.
If you notice some of the foliage is wilting or the tips of new stems are bending over, it would be a great time to give your rose a deep soak.
Using mulch is a great way to retain soil moisture that the Popcorn Drift Rose needs. Mulch will also help slow down weed growth around the plant.
Pruning is definitely not required for the Popcorn Drift Rose, but it does respond well to it. It can be pruned hard in late winter or early spring to ensure the plant will have healthy blooms throughout the season.
If you are unsure about pruning your roses, read our blog post here. In the end, roses are pruned to ensure they are in good health, but a lot of factors go into it!
When planting the Popcorn Drift Rose, be sure you space the plant correctly so it has plenty of room to develop a proper root system. Space your roses about 3 to 5 feet apart so when they bloom, they give off a big display.
Staggering your roses, rather than planting them in a straight line, is also recommended for easier growth and a more natural look for your landscape.
