Coral Drift Rose Tree
Massive, Colorful Blooms
Mounds of vibrant color cover the unusual ball-shaped form of the Coral Drift Rose Tree. Masses of blossoms will bring a flush of color to upper levels of the garden for an entire growing season.
The Coral Drift Rose Tree can rise as high as 3 to 4 feet tall. It furnishes the upper story of the garden with gorgeous double roses borne on clusters of up to 15 flowers per stem. The color is a beautiful and bright hue of deep coral shaded with soft peach.
The deep-green foliage is a chic counterpoint to the flowers. The sphere of leaves rises from a single trunk, giving it a topiary feeling that is perfect for patio gardens as well as garden beds. Like all Drift Roses, the foliage of the Coral Drift Rose Tree is resistant to many of the diseases and pests that plague other varieties. It can even stand up to brief periods of dry soil.
Use this repeat bloomer to add color to your container garden. It would also make an interesting anchor for a perennial bed with low-growing plants at its feet. Put a pair at each side of your front entrance for a symmetrical, formal appeal.
You'll find plenty of uses for this versatile rose tree.
