Internationally acclaimed rosarian Jacques Ferare from Star Roses & Plants joins us to chat about Drift Roses.
Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. From the former they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature.
Continuously blooming from spring to frost (bloom cycle about every 5-6 weeks), they are naturally dwarf, with very attractive foliage. They are winter hardy to zone 4.
Drift® Roses range in size from 2-3' wide x 1 1/2' tall. The low, manageable habit of Drift® Roses makes them perfect for small gardens, hillsides, perennial beds and even awkward areas. They brighten up borders and fill in empty spaces around your favorite established plants.

STEVE HUTTON - President & CEO Star Roses & Plants
Steve Hutton, president and CEO of Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle, is a third-generation nurseryman. At age of 12 he had his first paying job in the industry—following a number of non-paying jobs—selling pansies that he and his brothers grew to the garden center Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle had at the time.
After graduating from Earlham College with a degree in English literature, Hutton sought practical industry experience at a number of different nursery establishments. He worked in a cut rose operation, E.G. Hill, then for a year at a foliage plant nursery, Oakdell, Inc., in Apopka, Florida. His final stop was as a trainee at the world-renowned French rose breeding operation, Meilland International.
When he returned to Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle in 1978, his first job was routing trucks during the spring shipping season. He later held positions as head of the license department, vice president of production and, finally, president of the company.
Hutton is a past president of All America Rose Selections, president of the National Association of Plant Patent Owners, member of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Gold Medal Award Committee, member of the board of The Wholesale Nursery Growers of America and member of the International Plant Propagators’ Society.
