Rose plants in your landscape reward a little effort with terrific value. Over the past month in my yard in SE Louisiana several roses have exploded with blooms. Some of these roses also bloomed in the winter months, but then it was just one flower at a time and the blooms developed over several weeks.
The pictures below feature two quite different kinds of roses from my yard this April. The red roses are “Knockout” roses, which are hardy, disease resistant, and repeat bloomers. All the other pictures show English roses that are fancier, but require a bit more tending.
