I planted this bush a couple of weeks ago. It's called a Drifter. The guy at the nursery said it would get to be about 3 feet high and a couple of feet around. My question is this...it just seems to be spreading out and not getting any taller right now. Should I prop this up somehow?

It is a bit confusing.There are several roses that are sold as Rosa; Drifter. Little or no information is provided albeit, they form a groundcover.
There is Drifters Escape. Registered 1971. Fls. Vermillion. 3-3.5 ins. 10 petals.

I know this particular rose , also known as an ocean rose o a coastal drift rose it likes well drained soil especially sandy soil and prefers a slight saline content . In ideal conditions about chest high on me , so yea roughly 3' . They will spread quite well hence the name .
The hips are like bird crack so you are likely to find new plants elsewhere.
Fun fact , rose hips were one commonly used for tea and a vulgar tasting wine amongst other recipes , some sill used today .
