Rosa 'Meidrifora' PP 19148

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

Special Attributes

Coral Drift has the most vibrant flowers that will catch your eye from anywhere. Bright coral-orange blooms cover this small mounding shrub from mid Spring to mid Fall! 

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 to medium size garden spaces, pots, planters and other patio containers of 12 inches or more in rim diameter. In larger landscape spaces, for stunning floral displays plant them in groupings or mass plantings for vibrant splashes of season-long color, or as a front facing border in home foundation plantings, landscape borders or rose gardens.      

Suggested Spacing:  24" apart for mass plantings;  4' or more 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. To avoid powdery mildew on leaves, all roses require morning sun to dry the morning dew from their 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.
