A Rose A Day: Sunny

Who wouldn’t love the lovely Sunny … a proud member of  Knockout family of roses. This rose just blooms and blooms and blooms. And, is the most fragrant of the Knockouts.

Beautiful. Disease resistant. Adds so much to my overall garden experience.

Highly recommended for any sized garden. Prune back in early spring (when the forsythia blooms) at least a third of the bush for over all health. You can prune more if you have limited space. This rose is about 4 x 3 in my garden so far this year. Give it a little fertilizer and you are good to go!

My garden friend, Diane LaSauce, has only one rose in her garden–a beautiful Sunny. I am predicting that at the end of the month, she will be set for a few more roses–what do you think? Hey, check out Diane’s beautiful blog, About Home, Garden & Life .… don’t miss the post on her bluebirds.

See ya tomorrow.
