West Grove, PA — If designing a garden seems like a daunting task, look to Drift® Roses for instant impact. Gardeners who need roses to be compact and easy to grow should look to Drift® Roses when designing their gardens.
Drift® Roses are a cross between groundcover and miniature roses. Topping out at 2-3 feet wide by 1.5-2 feet tall, they are ideal for small gardens and tough-to-fill spots in larger gardens. They can be used to spruce up a walkway, around a mailbox or front entrance, or any area that can benefit from a dose of color. Drift® Roses also make great companion plants with other roses, colorful perennials, and more structured shrubs. They even thrive on hillsides or under other difficult conditions, provided they receive full sun.
Low-maintenance and exceptionally disease-resistant, Drift® Roses bloom every five to six weeks from spring to the first hard frost. They are available in six varieties:
Gardening expert P. Allen Smith says Drift® Roses are a great way to add color and visual interest to every garden.
“With repeat blooms and beautiful foliage, Drift® Roses make for the most spectacular groundcover in beds, along pathways or even spilling dramatically over a wall or other structure,” Smith says. “Drift® Roses have qualities that earn them a place in a small garden — compact habit, easy care and continuous bloom.”
