Very Pleased
The Sweet Drift Rose arrived packed in well with a tree order also. Arrived as a strong hearty potted bush, with active blooms. I'm not sure if I'll leave it potted, or place it in another area of my rose garden. For now, it remains in it's pot, is thriving and starting to have new blooms.
Beautiful tiny roses!

My Favorite
This rose bush is quickly becoming my favorite with disease resistant foliage and prolific pink roses that seem to last forever and are nicely scented as well. Plus it propagates easy from cuttings.

To be seen
Plants just arrived today, supposedly shipped yesterday, so if true it was a quick turn around. (live in Omaha, NE). It arrived well packaged and potted, with plastic zip tied around the base of the plant to keep the dirt from escaping. I don't know where I got the idea that these didn't have thorns, but it would've been a deal breaker had I know they do. I will update with another review as time passes and I can comment more on them.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Sweet 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 Sweet 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 Sweet Drift® Rose again after the transplant is complete.

Does this rose bush have thorns?
Karen h on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No it does not have thorns, and blooms beautifully. I planted mine in a large pot before I transfer it into a place in the sun in the ground.
Does the Sweet Drift Rose require pruning when first planted, in the summer season?
Nancy M on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think that when you prune it, it does better! But I don't think that it needs it.
Lots of foliage but no flowers?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: no problem there. you may find that location affects one round of blooms they are wonderful

Nancy M on Jul 17, 2015

Can I postpone the shipping date, so I will be at home, when the Sweet Drift Roses are due to arrive?
Nancy M on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can do this on line at check out or you can call our wonderful sales team and they can place the order for you and add that delay date to your order so they will ship out when you are ready.
How far apart, (on center), should I plant the Sweet Drift Roses, to allow for sufficient air circulation?
Nancy M on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted my Sweet Drift Roses in 12inch containers and they are HUGE now! They have probably spread a good 10 inches beyond the edges of the container. and stand 18-20 inches tall. Very bushy. If I were to plant in the ground, depending on if you wanted a solid hedge or space between, I plant 21/2 to 3feet apart. Hope this helps. Joanne
