Groundcover Drift Roses for Sale Online
Drift Roses are a blend between miniature roses and full sized ground cover roses. Their stamina, hardiness, and disease resistance comes from the latter and their manageable size and frequent blooms come from the former.
Drift Roses are a unique member of the rose family, resembling something between a ground cover and a miniature rose bush. These compact rose bushes only grow to about 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide at their largest, making them an excellent choice for planting in smaller, harder-to-reach places. Drift roses come in a variety of colors ranging from red and pink to yellow and white, and each variety has slightly different features. For example, the peach drift rose has a larger bloom than average, completely covering the shrub, and it’s one of the most disease-resistant varieties. On the other hand, the vibrant red variety has a comparably smaller bloom and darker coloration. The Drift rose family is some of the best flowering shrubs you can get for your garden. With colorful blooms that appear from mid-spring to late fall, flowering drift rose shrubs add easy-to-maintain color to your landscape. Drift Roses make perfect groundcover roses in sunny areas of the landscape.
