Planting & Care

This Coral Drift® Rose (Rosa 'Meidrifora') is a compact shrub that’s 1-2 feet high and 2-3 feet wide at its full maturity. The glossy green foliage is the perfect background for these eye-catching, coral-colored blooms. The shrub makes a great companion for any established beds that want a punch of color from spring to fall. Best suited for USDA growing zones 4-10 (hardy down to minus 20 degrees), they prefer full sun but can tolerate partial sunlight. While this may be a moderately growing shrub, it is a stunning specimen, blooming prolifically from the very beginning of its addition to your landscape.

Selecting a location: Be sure to have a well-prepared area or raised bed for your Drift® Roses with a generous amount of organic matter, such as compost. Well-draining soil is very important so be sure water does not collect in the area you intend to plant. If you have an overabundance of clay you may want to amend the soil with small rocks, sand, or perlite to improve drainage.

Planting Directions (in the ground): A location that receives full sun (6+ hours) is best as the roses will not reach their full potential in shaded areas.

1) Dig the hole and make it twice the size of the root ball and just as deep as the container. Use your hands or a shovel to loosen the soil at the bottom of the hole.
2) Carefully remove the rose from its container. Some light tapping around the base of the pot will help free up the root ball. Loosen the roots with your hands by gently combing the bottom of the root ball. Place the plant in the hole making sure it’s level with the soil surface.
3) Start adding the native soil/gardening soil mix back around the roots. Soil amendments such as peat moss, compost or aged manure can be mixed in with your native soil to improve the quality.
4) Thoroughly water your Apricot Drift® Rose around the base of the plant until it’s well soaked but not saturated (avoid soupy soil).
5) Mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and reduce competing growths such as weeds or grasses from growing around the plant. If left unchecked the soil nutrients may be lacking for the roses to grow.

Planting Directions (potted plant): Apricot Drift® roses can also be successfully grown in containers providing they get proper care and placement.

1) When selecting a container for your Drift® roses, be sure it has plenty of holes on the bottom as drainage is essential.
2) A good potting soil such as Miracle Grow should be fine for filling in the open pot space. Try to leave 1-1 ½ inches of space from the top of the pot lid for easy watering.
3) Choose a location such as a patio, backyard, front/side of the house providing it will receive the six or more hours of full sun it requires.

Watering (in the ground): Your Apricot Drift® Rose will need to be watered 1-3 times weekly depending on the weather. During the extremely hot season, you may need to water more often to keep the soil moist but avoid over saturating. Mulching really helps with retaining soil moisture.

Watering (potted): Stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is dry and sandy-like, go ahead and water it until you see it escaping the drainage holes, and then stop. If there is still some moisture present, leave it be until the soil dries a bit more.

Fertilizing: The best time to fertilize roses is in the spring season with a slow-release or controlled time-release fertilizer. Add another application in late summer to help with fall blooms. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the fertilizer for the best results. Potted roses should be fed in the same fashion, during the growing season with a time-release fertilizer in spring and again in late summer.

Pruning: Roses should be pruned in early spring and never in the fall or winter. When you see new shoots begin to form from the canes, that's a good sign that some pruning is needed. Sterilize your cutting tool(s) with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean cut and so no pathogens will be contracted or spread.
