Peach Drift® Rose

Product Description

The elegant Peach Drift Rose bush features an authentic ground-cover habit and offers a fresh look to any landscape or garden. This rose bush’s soft peach blooms cover the plant from mid spring and offer a beautiful season-long show of color.

The low, spreading habit of Drift groundcover roses makes them ideal for small gardens, hillsides or perennial beds. Their colors will brighten up an array of border types, fill empty spaces and spread nicely around your already established plants! They are excellent mass planting roses!

The dark green foliage is evergreen and will stay green all year long! Rosa meiggili plants are an excellent choice for any garden or landscape!

Drift Rose Care

The rose is best suited for full sun areas and will adapt to a variety of soil types. Purchase our Rose Soil Mix for the perfect amendment for planting in the ground or in containers. These floriferous dwarf shrubs exhibit strong disease resistance as all members of the Drift series do. Don’t worry about black spot, mildew, and rust… they are all covered with being resistant!

These miniature roses grow up to 1-2 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide and feature a spreading habit. They are the #1 ground cover roses from Star Roses and plants. The Peach Drift Rose pair well with perennials in any landscape as a companion plant.

The Peach rose bush has great winer hardiness and is extremely cold hardy. Grow across the United States in USDA growing zones 5-10. Will produce flowers throughout the growing season until the first freeze of late fall.

Fertilize your new plant annually in early spring with Slow Release Fertilizer at the top of the root ball. Water thoroughly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. See our How to Plant a Rose Bush post for more information on planting roses.

Shipping Info

Once your Peach Drift® Rose order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

our story Lloyd nurseryGrowing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order.  Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.

Care

The Peach Drift® Rose 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 Peach Drift® Rose, 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 Peach roses came in…..I had several questions about the spacing of plants before I bought them. Natalie at Perfect Plants was very helpful, resulting in my order of 6 roses. They arrived full of flower buds about to open! Next week I will start to have flowers. Talk about ‘PERFECT’ timing! Thanks Natalie!

    Great small rose. If you have not bought a Drift rose, Perfect Plants has all the colors and the quality is top notch. Just added Peach and two Popcorn to my garden.
