These little Drift roses are true garden work horses and so undemanding! Ive grown the double pink and the white and theyre equally satisfying. Highly recommend this shrub rose. No fragrance. Has thorns but Ive been hurt by worse.

UPDATE 4/25/21: it is recommended it be pruned to 6 to maintain its dwarf shape. I did minimal pruning and now have a 1.5 tall x 3 wide shrub. Have made a mental note to prune it to 6 in future to maintain its dwarf size. It wants to grow!
