When to Plant Drift Rose

Pamela Simpson added on October 13, 2015 | Answered

I live in western MD and purchased a drift rose and wanted to ask if it can be planted this late in the fall (Oct. 13th) or what can I do to wait until spring to plant?

You can plant the drift rose this late but be sure to mound some dirt up around it when the frosts hit and send it into dormancy for the winter. Keep a close eye on soils moisture too as its roots will not be well set. I personally would plant the rose into a larger pot with drainage holes and over winter it inside the garage or in a covered/tented area up close to the house. Then in the early Spring plant her outdoors.
