Rosa ‘Meiswetdom’ PP#21612


The exquisite Sweet Drift® Rose is covered with clusters of cotton candy pink double flowers that bloom and re-bloom from spring until frost. This tough, resilient deciduous hybrid reaches a mature height of 3 feet and a width of 2 feet making it a prime candidate for a number of areas in landscapes. Ideal for ground cover, gardens, container, border, mass planting, walkways, or break up areas between hardscapes.

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.

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.
