Knockout Roses

5" x 7" Watercolor

Since I'm not a gardener, I'm probably the last person on the planet to discover "Knockout Roses". But, I'm so glad I finally found them! I've had quite a time here in Florida, trying to find plants that will live in this soil/sand! And, it's equally as hard to find anything that will bloom! These beauties are said to bloom continuously from spring to frost! And, I even spoke to a stranger today who lives here, and she promised that her knockouts performed excellently for her. Of course, there is a drawback -- they have no scent! But bloom they do! I'm planting quite a few, in hopes that they will color up my outdoor world!
