What gardener does not dream of an almost-everblooming plant that is tough, disease resistant, and winter hardy?

Dream no more! Drift roses are a wonderful, low-maintenance plant for the Louisiana landscape.

Drift roses are a series of low-maintenance roses that fit a special niche in the shrub rose market. These ground-hugging shrubs are from the same folks who gave us the Knock Out series of landscape rose. Drift roses have all the benefits of Knock Out roses but in a smaller package.

The low, spreading habit of Drift roses makes them perfect for small gardens and combination planters. Use them in the landscape to add color from April thru October. Drift roses come in a multitude of colors including pink, coral, red, peach, apricot, sweet (clear pink) and popcorn (whitish yellow).

A landscape shrub rose that is low maintenance, low-growing, and blooms from April thru October! What a super idea!
