'Red Drift Rose' --- What Else is Similar? Small, Spreading Rose

Posted by missmary (My Page) on

You know those "drift roses" that are being sold by the people who developed the knock outs... they grow about 1 1/2 - 2 feet tall, grow wide, bloom constantly, etc. I have a few "peach drift".

They have a "red drift" - but the picture looks kind of magenta, pinkish-red. Does anyone have the red drift rose? Can you tell me what shade of red it is?

Also, if I wanted to consider my choices in a rose like "red drift", but not "red drift" - what kind of rose would I be looking at? What catagory of rose is it that grows low to the ground, spreads and blooms throughout the season?

Does anyone have a favorite rose of this type, that is red, to recommend to me?

Thank You,

I have Red Drift in front of my mailbox since it stays low, and on both sides I have Red Sunblaze. It's a minature, but not like most of my minis. It is also by Meilland and for me has been very disease resistant (this is their 3rd year) and have only gotten to be about 1.5-2 ft tall so far. Also, their blooms stay for close to a week for me.

Here is a link that might be useful: Red Sunblaze
