The Drift® Rose is a hybrid rose bush that incorporates the toughness and resilience of larger ground cover roses and the beauty of miniature roses. Bright coral-orange blooms cover this small mounding shrub from mid-spring to mid-fall. This low laying plant is perfect for use as ground cover, but many people will use these for contrast against other shrubs or trees. This plant is winter hardy and disease resistant.  Drift® Roses work well by itself in a pot or container, grouped together, as an accent piece complementing a larger plant, or as foundation planting.


Roses have several edible parts, with a rich history of use all across the globe. Use as food, medicine, or even perfume at your own risk--please do your own research. Any new product can cause allergies, and not all pesticides or fertilizers you use in your yard or ours is suitable for all creative uses.

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

Drift Roses are fast growing and spreading and bloom throughout the warm seasons. I usually plant them in mass planting or at least three and I often use a random mixture of blooms in order to create a colorful display. They are easy to grow and need little care except an occasional dead heading.

Gardener’s Notes: Since lower spreading plants like the Drift® Rose tend to work better accompanying other larger plants, it is better to plant these in front of taller plants especially since they have a good spread to cover up unsightly empty spots and they add a great color to the landscape. Drift® Roses are great to use on sunny slopes since most slope plants do not look as good as a Drift® Rose.
