Caring For Drift® Roses
Drift® Roses love to soak in the sun and thrive best in areas where they can soak up the warm rays for at least 6 hours a day. To keep the roots of these roses happy and healthy, it is recommended to add a light layer of mulch to keep in moisture so there is no drying out. These easy-keepers enjoy regular waterings however they should be in an area with good drainage so they do not become too saturated. If planting in a container, choose a container that has proper drainage holes to keep these roses happy. To really feed their growth, quality fertilizer will encourage healthy and continual growth.
When to fertilize?
Fertilize after the first set of blooms are complete. To ensure that the roots do not get burnt, moisten the soil before laying fertilizer. Be sure to avoid fertilizing in late summer, the roses are preparing themselves to go into upcoming dormancy.
Blooms will appear from summer all the way through fall.
Drift Roses are very versatile and hardy allowing flexible planting. There is not a bad time to get out and plant a Drift Rose!
