Everyone loves roses and Coral Drift Groundcover Rose (Rosa Meidrifora) offers plenty more reasons. Coral Drift is unique in several ways. First, it grows low (about 1.5 feet tall) and wide (about 2.5 feet). That makes it more suited as a groundcover or low border than in a rose bed. Second, the coral color of its many late spring and all-summer blooms is not common, but a perfect complement to purples and yellows in the landscape.

Coral Drift Groundcover Rose blossoms open just above glossy green foliage that appears in spring, for a gorgeous effect when planted as a group for groundcover or side by side to border a garden bed, patio or sidewalk. The flowers attract butterflies and the rose has been bred to resist disease. The hardy little shrub can survive the cold of zone 4 winters and higher and can tolerate the heat of zone 11 summers. Gardeners can cut the pretty coral flowers to bring inside for arrangements.

Coral Drift Groundcover Rose Care

The easy-care Coral Drift Groundcover Rose needs only light pruning for shape or to remove damaged branches in late winter (usually February through March). If you have plenty of room and like the plants' shape, you might not need to prune at all. Plant your rose so the soil level matches that of the pot it arrived in. Be sure to plant your rose where it gets at least six hours of sun a day. Water Coral Drift regularly, about weekly, and more often in high heat.

Coral Drift Groundcover Rose Spacing

For a coral color explosion, plant as many Coral Drift Groundcover Rose shrubs as you can. Just space the plants about 2 to 2.5 feet apart to account for their mature size.

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.
