Drift Roses are so easy to care for. Basically just plant, water, and thats it!
At the time of planting, water your drift rose daily for at least 1 week with a hose. Make sure that the root ball is throughly saturated so that it does not dry out. If you have an sprinkler system, we still recommend hand watering just to ensure success.
We suggest a quality slow release fertilizer to mix in or sprinkler around each drift rose. The slow release fertilizer will ensure your drift rose will be covered in blooms! Fertilize 2 times a year. Once in the spring, and again in the summer.
