>Up until today, my passion for growing roses has been confined to the backyard. Mainly due to the “ugly knees” look that hybrid teas can sometimes have mid-summer. With the advent of full, ever blooming Knock Out Roses, I can now venture outside my comfort zone. (I also had to get over what my wife deems “rose snobbery” – see previous posts).
Today, however, I planted two Double Knock Out Roses in the front yard, right in front of our bedroom window. They are back planted with large fern, which will back a great backdrop for the new roses.
