These things are awesome and beautiful. Bloom till Christmas last year. I don't think there is another plant that blooms that long.

what are they?

Til Christmas? Sheer madness. What variety are those? Do they have the typical rose issues? Any leaf spot?

My wife wants a rose garden, but I have been resisting it. Maybe I should reconsider.

They are knock out or Carpet roses. Extremely long bloom time, very little problems. A great shrub!

I would have said knockout, but I have only seen them in red.

Yeah not sure, I dont use them enough, but I know the caret roses come in yellow which is very similar to the knockout with disease resistance and bloom times.

I love them as well. They beat the socks off of an azalea that blooms for 2 weeks out of the year. They are getting really popular now... almost over planted really.

I think those are knock out roses. We have been planting alot of them lately because the customers want somthing that puts out a season long bloom. They are beautiful.

Because of water restriction in our area we are planting them in beds with the zinnas this year and may go full roses next year.

Yea, these are knockouts and last year was the 1st we had of the yellow and orange. I have not seen them this year. I think they are called Livin Easy and Easy goin. We never do anything but cut them back hard in January. Red is the most popular around here.
