Apricot Drift Rose
Rosa 'Meimirrote' Apricot Drift

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-11  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 4a, where this Drift Rose variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

Super low-maintenance and a prolific bloomer, Apricot Drift Rose exhibits a true groundcover habit and offers a fresh look to the series. Double flowers in shades of apricot nearly cover the low mounds in spring and then repeat up to five flower cycles through summer and fall. Apricot Drift is just as tough and disease resistant as others in the Drift series. 

The new family of Drift Roses are comparable to the family of Knock Out Roses in disease resistance and low-maintenance, however are much smaller in size. They get their small size from being a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. From the former they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Being dwarfs, Drift Roses are ideal for use as a specimen in small garden spaces or solo or combined with other plants in pots, planters and other containers. In larger landscape spaces plant them in groupings, mass plantings or as a border along walks and pathways for stunning floral displays and vibrant splashes of season-long color. The Drift Roses are ones that we don;t hesitate to recommend for use in home foundation plantings.

Suggested Spacing:  2 feet apart for mass plantings;  5 or more feet apart for space between plants

Cultural Requirements

Drift Roses are exceptionally easy to grow in average, well-drained soils with medium moisture in full sun to part shade. As with all other roses, the Drift roses require morning sun to dry the morning dew from their leaves, which prevents powdery mildew from forming on the leaves. Some afternoon shade or filtered sun is fine. We suggest 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for best flowering. Drift Roses do not require pruning, however, they do benefit from it. We cut our Drift Roses back to about 4 to 6 inches above the ground before new growth begins to emerge in late winter or very early spring. Plants will quickly flush out and start blooming with the arrival of spring temperatures. Deadheading spent flowers is not necessary however will encourage more new buds and flowers.
