Why Red Drift Roses?
The Red Drift Rose has earned the reputation as a true plant-and-forget rose that rewards you unmatched color. From novices to masters, gardeners love Red Drift Roses because they get tons of double-blooms with virtually no upkeep.
The Red Drift is a space-saver that's extremely pest and disease-resistant. Years of hybridizing and development have made these some of the easiest groundcover roses to grow.
In fact, the Red Drift is resistant to the most common plagues and pests that affect other varieties, including mildew, black spot, rust, and dreaded Japanese beetles. That means its sturdy and strong silhouette is a great choice for containers and small gardens where it won't overpower your space. It's also well-suited to perennial beds or cascading growth along garden walls, But no matter where you plant, Red Drift sports up to 15 double-blooms per stem!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your rose in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.
4. Pruning: Other than for shaping purposes, no pruning is required.
