Hi everyone-One of the first things I planted in Lindsey's memorial garden was 3 pink & 3 red knockout roses. That was a little over 2 yrs ago I did that. My how they have grown. They are a sight to behold and always make me smile each year. They truly live up to their name of a KNOCKOUT rose. They bloom profusely all summer long and are disease resistant, unlike many of the other kinds of roses I have.
Here is LINDSEY"S roses. Befitting memorial to my Lindsey girl
Towards the end of the season last year they had grown so much that I couldn't even get into the garden without straddling the fence and climbing over. So this spring I cut them back enough so I could use the walkway. This is what it looked like after I trimmed them back.
Obviously I needed to cut them back even more because this is what the walkway looks like a couple of days ago and it has grown even more just in those couple of days
