Peach Drift Rose
Finally, a low growing rose that blooms from spring to frost like crazy and is disease resistant. From the folks that introduced The Knockout Rose now bring you The Drift Rose.
The Drift Rose comes in six color choices of peach, apricot, coral, red, pink, and sweet drift. They grow approximately 1 to 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide. The peach is the most prolific bloomer and has a scent. It is multi-colored of pink and yellow. My Favorite of all is the peach, probably because it reminds me of my favorite sherbert ice cream. It just looks so delicous you will want to lick it! The red has the smallest bloom of all the drifts and is so very sweet. The coral is very striking and bright. The pink is a single star shape flower. I had have not tried the two new introductions this spring of the apricot and sweet drift. They all are great for areas where you need a small bush or they work fantastic planted in a container where you want long lasting color.
In the test gardens this past year, this rose variety kept it's leaves when the other roses dropped theirs and bloomed nine straight months. The foilage remained deep green and dense.
If you love your Knockout Roses, you have got to give these little jewels a try. You will not be disappointed. Hurry, we sell out fast. This Thursday is our 5th shipment and the grower said it will be a couple of weeks before the next one is ready.
