Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Coral 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.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Coral 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 Coral Drift® Rose again after the transplant is complete.

how many of these would I need to do a 12' area?
Jennifer T on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You are going to have one magnificent show! If you are referring to a 12 square-foot area (12' x 12'), you will need 16 plants, spaced 3 feet apart, and it will take a couple of years for the plants to grow to fill in. If you want faster, or more dense coverage, use 25 plants spaced 2 1/2 feet apart to cover your 12 square feet.
How soon do I plant them in the spring?

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
