Quick Overview:

This Lemon Drift Rose makes a wonderful addition to outdoor spaces. This species is a cross between a full-size groundcover rose and a miniature rose. Like groundcover roses, it’s tough, disease resistant and hearty in the winter. Like miniature roses, it provides you with a manageable size and repeat blooming patterns. The low spreading habit of this lemon rose plant is ideal for small gardens and combination planters. It brightens borders, fills empty spaces and spreads delicately around established plants. This plant is low maintenance and will reward you with endless color all season long. It requires no special care, but for the best performance, it is recommended that you cut the plant back every year in early spring.

Grow in medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained garden loams in full sun to part shade. Water deeply and regularly (mornings are best). Avoid overhead watering. Good air circulation promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps control foliar diseases. Summer mulch helps retain moisture, keeps roots cool and discourages weeds. Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Remove and destroy diseased leaves from plants, as practicable, and clean up and destroy dead leaves from the ground around the plants both during the growing season and as part of a thorough cleanup during winter (dormant season). Prune as needed in late winter to early spring.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
