Stunning, Healthy plant
Received two of these rose bushes in three gallon containers & must report they are absolutely so lush, healthy & blooming with many buds. I received several plants from FGT & 99% of them all are extremely healthy & obviously well raised & cared for. As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for, the quality is there with this company & you will pay for that.

Pretty Little Rose Bush
This rose came to me healthy and lush, with quite a few blooms. I like the color, and think it will fit nicely in my flower bed as a border plant. The sun (and heat) can be brutal here in Utah in the summer, but this little rose seems to take it all in stride. I would purchase from this family of roses again, and I would recommend it to a friend.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Apricot Drift® Rose

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Apricot Drift® Rose.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Apricot Drift® Rose gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Apricot Drift® Rose again after the transplant is complete.

I'm looking for a rose that will grow in very sandy soil. Is this a good choice?
KateW on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can grow them in sandy soil, you may have to amend the soil or add sulfur at time of planting. They like their pH level to be 6-6.5. Sandy soil can raise the pH level.
I'm in Central Missouri. What do I need to do to over winter my Drift Roses?
Jan M on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well I am in a more temperate climate here is CA. But, we grow roses in our snow country. I would cut your rose way back and then cover it with a thick layer of mulch around the rootball and crown of the rose.Do not smother it though.This is recommended if you are in snow country or if you get below 0 temps.
