Decorate your life with a wonderfully versatile Rose! Sweet Drift® Rose ('Rosa 'Meiswetdom') produces amazing clusters of fully double, clear-pink flowers.

These fun and flirty blooms grow abundantly on a dense Rose bush. The blooms are perfectly set off with the lustrous, dark green foliage. You'll need to pick up several vases, as they'll be plenty of flower clusters to cut for indoor decorations. Try tiny bud vases for individual blooms or add entire sprays of blooms in larger arrangements. Even after filling your bouquets, there will still be plenty of blooms left outdoors for your many pollinators that are sure to drop by for a visit!

You'll be forgiven if you fall head over heels for these pretty plants. But don't worry, your love affair won't keep you up at night, nor is this little gem high-maintenance. Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size Groundcover Roses and Miniatures. These tough, winter-hardy, repeat bloomers are a mix of the best of both parents and all the adaptability you'd expect from a modern Rose bush! You'll definitely appreciate their compact size and adaptability throughout all of the USDA hardiness zones 4 through 11!

#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.

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. 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. 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.

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 though, as those thorns aren't kidding around. Read all you need about pruning Roses, winterizing Roses, and un-wintering them in spring in our Garden Blog!

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Roses need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
