Plant the Peach Drift Rose in a location that provides well-drained soil and full sun to part shade. Morning sun is a must on roses to dry the morning dew from foliage. This is a hardy, low-maintenance, dwarf shrub rose that is useful in the landscape as a border in beds, in small to large groupings, as groundcover plant on slopes or embankments, or in containers.

To plant, dig a hole no deeper than the root ball and two to three times the width of the root ball and fill it with water. If the hole drains within a few hours, you have good drainage. If the water is still standing 12 hours later, improve the drainage in your bed, perhaps by establishing a raised bed. Turn and break up the soil removed from the planting hole. If the native soil is dense, compacted or heavy clay, mix in a good organic compost or soil amendment at a 50/50 ratio with the soil removed from the planting hole. Remove your plant from its container and carefully but firmly loosen the root ball. Set the plant into the hole you've prepared, making sure the top of the root ball is slightly above the soil level. Pull your backfill soil mixture around the root ball in the hole, tamping as you go to remove air pockets. Then water thoroughly and cover with a one to two-inch layer of mulch.

I fertilize my Drift Roses with a mild, natural plant food in early spring when the new growth begins to emerge and then about every 4 to 6 weeks throughout the season. I stop fertilizing them about two months before the first frost date. Frequent fertilization promotes increased blooming and deeper green foliage.

I prune my Drift Roses to about 4 to 6 inches or so in height in early spring, never in the fall and never in the winter. When you start to see new shoots growing from the canes in early spring, that's a good sign that it is time to prune. After the initial heavy spring pruning, you can light prune them to remove faded flower clusters. Doing so will encourage new growth and flower buds to form. Cease pruning a month or so before the first frost date in your area.

I've seen no serious pest or disease problems with any of the Drift Roses. Consistently wet soil can cause problems with the roots.
