Apricot Drift® Rose

Sold out


Drift® roses have become very popular in the last few years. Drift® roses are a perfect compliment to the Knock Out® rose or can be used as a smaller alternative.

The compact, but stunning Drift® rose is a perfect rose bush for planting around the house or in a small bed. Drift® roses are ideal in a group or around trees. Try planting in a hedge for stunning color.


The Apricot Drift® has a unique color. It's one of our favorites! Each bloom is lush with colorful petals that really attract attention.

If you are looking for a maintenance free rose, Drift® roses are as close as they come! They do not need to be pruned and are disease resistant. A high grade, slow release fertilizer will keep your roses blooming throughout the year. Ideal sunlight is 8 hours a day. Drift® roses share that same extended bloom time (spring through the first frost) as the Knock Out® rose, but in a smaller package ideal for small yards and beds. Expect a mature growth of just 1.5' feet tall and up to 2 feet wide.

How To Care

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.

Right before spring, you can prune your drift rose. Its not required but it will help maintain vigor and strength as well as encourage better blooming. We recommend pruning back, about 1/2 size. Drift Roses are really easy and just a pleasure to add to your landscape.

Wonderful plant

Plant arrived in excellent condition and very healthy with buds. Planted right away and rose is doing well. Already have had several blooms that are beautiful. Definitely would buy again from this company and highly recommend them.



I was duly impressed with all aspects of the purchase. The packaging was perfect; that rose bush couldn't have been damaged if it was thrown to the ground! The condition of the plant was perfect and looked just like the photo in the ad. The unopened buds blossomed within a couple of days. I would use Planting Tree again without reservation..


Just love drift roses

These roses are my favorite. I planted them and don't have to do anything.


Much Better

I just love my drift roses! I switched from knock out roses to drift roses. I have not pruned these roses yet. I just love them.. I ordered the 3 gallon sizes. They came large and had flowers on them.
