#ProPlantTips for Care
No matter where you are in the country, chances are excellent you'll have terrific success with these pretty Drift Roses. They take extreme cold, humidity, and even scorching high temps.
Plant in full sun locations where they will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Give them 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 your Rose directly in that mound.
It's best to supply a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Add a thick layer of mulch over the root system to keep it cool and moist.
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. Wear gloves, as those thorns aren't kidding around.
Apply an organic, slow-release fertilizer in early spring and again in mid-summer. Follow the instructions on the label, and you'll give your plant support to keep the pretty blooms coming for you.
Sweet Drift Rose is an enchanting selection! Create your own perfect paradise with plenty of plants from Nature Hills. This is an outstanding groundcover Rose.
