The knock out rose is the best rose to plant. I took this picture at the Rose Arboretum at Colonial Park in NJ yesterday. When I walked into the gardens I felt like I was on a desserted island with the birds chirping and the fragrance of roses. The solitude was very nice….a slice of heaven!
I have no desire to grow roses. The thorns prickle me at work while I am arranging them. Its as if to say…just look at me….don’t pick me. They like to be admired from a far. I have yet to find out the reason for its name. I’m not a big fan!
