knock out roses


The head guy around here is delighted that he can now
have roses, because of knock-out roses.

our yard has limited sun because of the big trees, however
compared to our regular roses, the knockouts are profuse
bloomers.

Took this yesterday.

Beauties!!

I can't remember ..are the knock out continuous bloomers or are they a once a summer thing.
Those ones look very healthy. I just dug up 5 rose bushes and heaved them into the farmers field. I fight the little green worms that eat the foliage as well as aphids all summer long. I could no longer be bothered.
Mr top knot's don't look like they are suffering from either pest

Thanks creeper...ya wanna laugh, he has them planted in
big pots, and carries the pots into sunny areas following the sun!

They are continues bloomers, but for us this is the best bloom
cause they benefit from the extra sun in May ...

Our yard only gets about five hours of premium sun; although
we did have some serious tree trimming last Spring and fall,
so we're getting more sun.

Me too, I could garden all day long. I hate shopping, it drains me. I'd rather dig random, useless ditches then set foot in a mall

He should get a cute little wagon that would look good in the garden- put the pots in it and save his back

We have a lot of traveling plants...

That's what he likes about having ground covers such as
vinca vine in beds...he buries pots of flowers, so that
the posts aren't visible. He also plants extra pots of flowers to change
the pots off -- when the pots need to move to a more sunny area.
He swaps things around all the time.

This is the trunk of a huge maple in our front yard.

Maples have roots that stick up in the ground (stick very high up)

grass will not grow around this huge maple...
So, The head groundskeeper made a cobble stone surround and
filled it with vinca vine. (my favorite vine)
it looks nice and lush, instead of unsightly roots with no grass.

Took this two days ago, in early spring it gets these little flowers.

hope this give some people ideas for planting problem areas,
also it's maintenance free...no weeding.
