Decorating with Roses

Coral Drift Rose

Coral Drift Rose

The Coral Drift Rose is a compact low growing rose that is a beautiful display of rose petals. What a great way to create a welcoming path leading to your house?Planting Coral Drift roses make the pathway attractive and welcoming and I just love Allen Smith's idea of using these low growing rose shrubs to make a visual welcoming statement. 

P. Allen Smith shares with us how he uses Drift® Roses in the garden.

“Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniatures. From the groundcover roses they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited a well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature. The low, spreading habit of Drift® Roses is perfect for small gardens and combination planters. They brighten borders, fill empty spaces, and spread delicately around established plants.

Drift® Roses are low maintenance and will reward you with endless color all season long. They require no special care, but for best performance, we recommend cutting them back every year in early spring after the last threat of frost has passed.

• Low maintenance
• Blooms from spring to frost
• Full sun
• Zones: 4-11
• Size: 2 1/2’ w x 1 1/2’ h
• 8 great colors”

Parts of the exterior of my home is grey flagstone and I planted these pale beauties. However this is a rose bush that grows upright and tends to want to greet everyone who passes by. I constantly have to prune it back so people won't get hit by a friendly rose bush. That's why I like the idea of using the low growing shrub varieties, they seem to be easier to control.
