Distant Drums produces clusters of pointed brunette buds that swirl open to reveal ruffles washed with orchid pink. One of our most popular shrub roses!
Stop, look and listen up! Here's a striking colour amongst the hardy roses released by the late Dr. Griffith Buck. Distant Drums grows much like a Floribunda in habit, drumming out clusters of pointed brunette buds that swirl open to reveal ruffles washed with orchid pink. All this set to music against dark green foliage makes for a toe-tapping commotion in the landscape - Distant Drums is a novel rose that is hardy and vigorous.
Shrub Roses are free-blooming plants with differing flower sizes and forms that are full and bushy. Our assortment of Weeks roses come in a variety of sizes and have been specially selected for their cold weather tolerance and are imported directly from the Weeks Roses in California, U.S.A.- one of the largest commercial rose growers in the United States since 1938.
