Buttery Yellow Blooms Rebloom All Year Long with Ease

Are you looking to add soft colors to enhance continuous elegance in your garden? The Popcorn drift rose bush will do just that with its repetitive blooming throughout the year. It features a slight color change that will amaze you!

The popcorn rose color starts as a soft yellow and fades to cream white blooms. The overall impression is yellow and cream reminiscent of buttery popcorn hence its name. Contrasting dark green foliage lies under the yellow flowers.

Drift Roses are a cross full-size ground cover roses and miniature roses. They gained durability, disease resistance, and winter hardiness from the full size ground cover roses. The drift series rose bushes gained a healthy size and repeat-blooming nature from the miniatures.

They enhance edgings, fill empty spaces, and spread elegantly around established plants, small gardens, or rock walls. Yellow drift roses are low maintenance and will reward you with endless color all season long.

To create an array of colors, plant with other shrub roses like Pink Drift Rose or Peach Drift Rose.

HOW TO GROW DRIFT ROSES

No special attention is required for Drift Rose Bushes besides well draining soil. For best presentation, prune drift roses annually in early spring after the last peril of frost has passed. The addition of mulch or organic matter will help with moisture retention. Don’t have the right soil conditions for roses? Buy our Rose Planting Mix to amend your native soil or container.

Be sure to water the drift groundcover roses thoroughly during the first year to establish a strong root system and keep the soil moist. These creamy white and yellow blooms prefer full sun and rest assured they will make your landscape look beautiful!

Drift roses are pest and disease resistant even to diseases like powdery mildew and black spot. An annual application of slow release fertilizer at the top of the root ball in the beginning of the growing season should help with any problems that may arise.

Grows best across the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-10. The yellow drift rose can get up to 1.5 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide at full maturity. If you wish, you may prune this rose bush into a popcorn rose tree.

Shipping information

The Popcorn Drift® Rose Bush does best in full sun or partial shade, too much shade can reduce flower development. Soil should be rich in organic matter. Amending soil by mixing your own soil with a supplemented, enriched soil can help in offering them an ideal growth environment.

Roses tolerate only mild drought, and should be watered regularly especially until established. Roses as a general rule prefer to be watered at their base, such as by a drip system. Frequently wet leaves can lead to a variety of fungal or pest problems.

Pruning is very important to promote densely growing, well producing Roses. Early spring is the optimum pruning time in most areas. Faded flowers can be snipped at any time to encourage repeat bloom (rather than seed) production.

Planting Instructions

Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Popcorn Drift® Rose Bush, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!

My roses are in the ground and very happy! They arrived in great condition. I had already tried to get popcorn drift roses through a local nursery who couldn't seem to make it happen for me. I decided to place an order myself. I found Perfect Plants online and now I have my popcorn drifts!
