My Knockout Roses Collection - Earth Kind Roses


These beautiful roses brought me many days of joy during this past spring and summer. They are Knock Out Roses. Because I so enjoyed these roses, I began to think about planting a rose garden for next spring. During my research I learned that the Knock Out rose is a member of a group of roses called Earth Kind Roses. Earth Kind is an important designation given to select roses by the Texas A&M University Agriculture program. Others include the Marie Daly, The Fairy, Caldwell Pink, and Belinda's Dream , just to name a few. Check out this interesting web site for more information. http://earthkindroses.tamu.edu/EKroses.html






The only thing that I knew about these roses was that they were pretty and easy to grow. Now I've stumbled on to a whole new rose culture.







I am very excited about planning my new rose garden. I can hardly wait to decide which Earth Kind Roses will become my new favorite rose.

Happy Gardening !

I have a couple of Knock-Outs also. I love them because they bloom profusely and they are so hardy. I didn't know about the Earth Kind designation though. I'll enjoy checking out that site.
