Rosa Ivory Drift® (Ivory Drift Rose) - A repeat blooming rounded small shrub to 2 feet tall with an equal width and 1 ½ inch wide 20 to 25 petaled yellow centered white colored flowers. This is the first to bloom of the new Drift® Series of roses from the French hybridizer Meilland. This series was created by crossing groundcover roses with miniature roses. The resulting plants have the durable characteristics of the ground cover roses such as toughness, vigor, disease resistance and hardiness coupled with the compactness and repeat blooming typical of miniature roses. The Drift® Series roses are noted for their dark glossy green foliage, continuous bloom from spring to frost and excellent disease resistance to rust, powdery mildew and black spot. Plant in full sun. Irrigate regularly. Hardy to Zones 5-10. (-10 to 20 F). We grew this plant in 2007 and early 2008 when it was destroyed at the request of the breeder after showing susceptibility to a infection by bacterial gall.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Rosa Ivory Drift TM .
