The Red Drift Rose (Rosa 'Meigalpio') produces the most petite flowers of the Drift Rose Family. These miniature roses bloom a deep red that never fades despite extreme heat and sun. Setting the backdrop for these roses is the glossy, serrated, deep green foliage.

With a growing season of May to October, the red flowers will brighten up your yard all summer long, and hold their bloom while other plants fall away in autumn. The vibrant color and compact shape make the Red Drift Roses famous, but it's their winter hardiness and disease resistance that makes them reliable. 

The drift groundcover roses can spread up to 3 feet wide and 2 feet tall. For optimal growth, we recommend pruning your shrub in early spring. They enjoy good air circulation, so planting these shrubs a few feet apart from one another is preferred. Make sure that your planting location receives full sun and at least 6 hours of sun a day. Shady areas will hinder the number of blooms and overall growth.

Thesee deciduous shrubs work great in a variety of planting styles. Most commonly, the Red Drift shrubs are used as ground cover, or placed in front of borders for some added interest to a yard. The plant's ground hugging nature, compact size and spreading habit makes it the ideal shrub for filling empty spaces without being too overwhelming.

As an added bonus, these shrubs work great for making beautiful cut flower arrangements!
