Pink Drift® Rose #3


Pink Drift® Rose Care

Planting: Choose a location with full sunlight (at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day) and well-drained soil for your Pink Drift® Rose. Ensure proper spacing to accommodate its mature size, typically around 1 to 2 feet in height and spread.

Watering: Water your Pink Drift® Rose regularly, especially during the first growing season to establish its roots. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant but benefits from regular watering, particularly during dry spells. Water at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to disease.

Soil: Pink Drift® Roses prefer well-drained, fertile soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Amend heavy or clay soils with organic matter such as compost to improve drainage and soil structure.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the plant’s stems to prevent rot and disease.

Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for roses in spring, just as new growth begins. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application rates and frequency. Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flowers.

Pruning: Prune your Pink Drift® Rose in early spring before new growth emerges to remove dead, damaged, or crossing branches. You can also shape the plant at this time if necessary. Deadhead spent flowers throughout the blooming season to encourage continuous blooming.

Protection: Pink Drift® Roses are generally resistant to pests and diseases, but monitor for common issues such as aphids, spider mites, or black spot. Treat promptly with insecticidal soap or fungicide if necessary.

Winter Care: In colder climates, provide a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to protect the roots from freezing temperatures. Consider wrapping the plant with burlap or providing additional protection if severe cold is expected.
