For the benefit and beauty of a rose garden without the fuss, Drift Roses are an excellent option. As a groundcover rose, the Buttercream Drift Rose (Rosa ‘Buttercream Drift’) is compact, growing 18-24 inches tall and 24-30 inches wide. The petite, creamy-yellow flowers are fragrant and bloom repeatedly throughout the summer. For a pollinator attractor without the constant need for pruning and attention, Drift Roses are a must.

Once established, the Buttercream Drift Rose is relatively drought and heat tolerant. One of the greatest benefits of a Drift Rose is its disease resistance. While the Buttercream Drift Rose is not deer resistant, its resilience and ability to rebloom help it grow back and bloom quickly after being disturbed. Drift Roses are low maintenance and easy to care for, perfect as a pop of color in a garden or planted together in a low-growing hedge. Its petite size makes it a perfect rose for containers as well.

Buttercream Drift Rose Care

To plant the Buttercream Drift Rose, dig a hole that is at least twice the width and equal depth as the root ball. Drift Roses grow best in full sun, planted in well-draining, neutral soil. While Drift Roses perform well without fertilizer, a rose-specific fertilizer can be applied the first year after planting and once the first round of blooms has finished in the early summer. Provide the Buttercream Drift Rose with regular watering through its first year and during the hottest, driest months. 

Drift Roses do not require deadheading as they naturally rebloom every 5-6 weeks. Weak or spindly branches can be pruned to maintain the Buttercream’s compact shape.  While Drift Roses are cold hardy, providing them with 2-3 inches of mulch will help protect the roots from extreme cold. Drift Roses can also be wrapped in burlap in the coldest regions to further insulate the plant. If kept in a container, be sure to move Drift Roses into a protected garage over the winter.   

Buttercream Drift Rose Spacing

Plant Drift Roses about 3-5 feet apart. To keep Drift Roses in a container, choose a pot with drainage that is about twice the size of the current pot. Be sure to provide plenty of sunlight; and water it regularly.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
