Bursts with Color and Beauty!

Here's why :

  • Incredibly showy, cream colored roses
  • Highly productive, yields tons of gorgeous blooms
  • Low maintenance, self-cleaning roses
  • Resistant to most pests and diseases

A Rose by any other Name will Pale in Comparison

If you appreciate the unrivaled beauty of roses, wait until you see the Popcorn Drift Rose. First, there's the roses themselves. Soothing to the eye, scores of faint yellow roses morph to a creamy white, flooding the plant with classic, pastel coloring.

The Popcorn Drift is one of the most productive rose varieties available. You'll get double blooms of picturesque flowers in spring and continuously with each passing season.

The roses' amazing colors pop even more thanks to a swath of dark green foliage that surrounds them. The combination of soft, white flowers and rich green leaves comes together for an inviting look that will bring elegance to any planting location you choose.

Planting options only Popcorn Drift will Give you

Aside from the sheer beauty of the Popcorn Drift Roses themselves, the full size of the blooms and low growing foliage makes them perfectly suitable as an impressive ground cover that's hard to beat.

This is a tough specimen that's resistant to a number of pests and diseases like rust and mildew that typically hamper most other roses. Add to that its minimal plant growth and you've got an easy to maintain shrub that works well in tight fitting spaces, as a foundation planting or strategically placed around the patio in containers.

One thing is certain, wherever you plant it the Popcorn Drift Rose will take your breath away.

Nice flowers, but not a fast grower
Has not grown as fast as it’s pink and red cousins. Maybe 1/3 the height in same conditions. Looks great otherwise. Nice blooms and tolerant of my clay soil (mixed with garden soil).

Sweet roses!
Arrived in good condition ready to plant with blooms awaiting to burst. I bought the smaller size and that works for us, but if you want it to fill a space quicker, buy the larger size bush. It has taken well to the garden at this point. (July) Hope it survives our Chicago winter!

Not worth the price - small sized plants

A lot of leaves fell - you are better off visiting your local store and seeing the plant before buying

A beautiful addition to my garden
I love it’s miniature roses and lush green foliage. It arrived poorly packaged for shipping; out of its pot and lots of breakage. I had purchased the insurance so I immediately noticed Fast Growing Trees. They sent me a replacement. It’s been easy to care for and is growing nicely. Very unique plant.

I live in a suburb community where my neighbor feeds the birds drawing in the deer. I planted Sunny Knock Out Roses, White Out Roses plus Popcorn Drift Roses and the deer ate them all right down to the thorns.

Planting & Care

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

Popcorn Drift® Rose  Planting Diretions

The Popcorn drift rose (Rosa ‘NovaFlora’) is a compact rose that produces loads of creamy yellow blooms from spring until first frost. This cold tolerant, moderately growing rose is commonly planted in USDA growing zones 5-11, tolerating temperatures all the way down to -10 degrees. With its compact growth of 2-3 feet tall/wide it makes a great flowering ground cover, small hedge to line a walkway, or as a show piece in rock gardens. The blooms pop against a background of dark green foliage and can also be successfully planted in a container to add a splash of color to any small space.

Selecting a location: Be sure to have a well prepared area or raised bed for your Drift Roses with a generous amount of organic matter, such as compost. Well draining soil is very important so be sure water does not collect in the area you intend to plant. If you have an overabundance of clay you may want to amend the soil with small rocks, sand or perlite to improve drainage.

Planting Directions (in ground): A location that receives full sun (6+ hours) is best as the roses will not reach their full potential in shaded areas.

1) Dig the hole and make it twice the size of the root ball and just as deep as the container. Use your hands or a shovel to loosen the soil at the bottom of the hole.
2) Carefully remove the rose from it’s container. Some light tapping around the base of the pot will help free up the root ball. Loosen the roots with your hands by gently combing the bottom of the root ball. Place the plant in the hole making sure it’s level with the soil surface.
3) Start adding the native soil/gardening soil mix back around the roots. Soil amendments such as peat moss, compost or aged manure can be mixed in with your native soil to improve the quality.
4) Thoroughly water your popcorn Drift Rose around the base of the plant until it’s well soaked but not saturated (avoid soupy soil).
5) Mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and reduce competing growths such as weeds or grasses from growing around the plant. If left unchecked the soil nutrients may be lacking for the roses to grow.

Planting Directions (potted plant): Popcorn drift roses can also be successfully grown in containers providing they get proper care and placement.

1) When selecting a container for your drift roses, be sure it has plenty of holes on the bottom as drainage is essential.
2) A good potting soil such as Miracle Grow should be fine for filling in the open pot space. Try to leave 1-1 ½ inches of space from the top of the pot lid for easy watering.
3) Choose a location such as a patio, back yard, front/side of the house providing it will receive the six or more hours of full sun it requires.

Watering (in ground): Your Popcorn Drift Rose will need to be watered 1-3 times weekly depending on the weather. During the extremely hot season you may need to water more often to keep the soil moist, but avoid over saturating. Mulching really helps with retaining soil moisture.

Watering (potted): Stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is dry and sandy-like, go ahead and water it until you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is still some moisture present, leave it be until the soil dries a bit more.

Fertilizing: The best time to fertilize drift roses is in the spring season with a slow-release or controlled time-release fertilizer. Add another application in late summer to help with fall blooms. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the fertilizer for the best results. Potted drift roses should be fed in the same fashion, during the growing season with a time release fertilizer in spring and again in late summer.

Pruning: Drift Roses should be pruned in early spring and never in the fall or winter. When you see new shoots begin to form from the canes that is a good sign that some pruning is needed. Sterilize your cutting tool(s) with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean cut and so no pathogens will be contracted or spread.

I have a large maple tree, under which the grass does not grow, and I am looking for plants to put under it. Will the popcorn drift rose do well under it, or die like the grass? I believe the morning sun slants under the tree, but there is no midday or evening sun.
Kelly on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We would not recommend you grow a rose under a tree; roses like full sun, or at least 6 hours of sun a day, and they do not compete well with an established tree's roots. Hostas and ferns both grow well under a Maple, You will need to water because the tree will soak up lots of water, and you will probably need to add compost and humus where you plant, and fertilize in spring,as the tree will have grabbed up soil nutrients. You could also go with a ground cover like Pachysandra, Vinca, Lamium or Hellebores. Hellebores.
Are Drift Roses evergreen?
Martha C on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Popcorn Roses are deciduous. They will loose their leaves in Winter and will come back in the Spring.

Fred J on Sep 13, 2015

Is there any fragrance to this rose?
fran l on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A little. I am very impressed with mine - they have taken off and have been hardy through heat, drought and snow which is pretty good going for Louisiana.
Are deer attracted to the Popcorn Drift Roae?
Donna I on Jul 28, 2017

They are NOT! No problems with deer. These are so easy to grow - they practically grow themselves.

Happy Planting
Do they bloom all year round? Do they have thrones on them??
sher p on Aug 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I love in Montana so they go dormant in the winter, but they do bloom all summer. Right now the plant is loaded with blooms. Yes, they have thornes.
