Of course, I wasn't able to delay gratification and I bought a Knockout rose while on another errand at my local big box store. She is blooming and so even though she isn't my original intent, I love her.
Belinda's Dream She isn't an OGR as she was bred in 1988, but she is an Earthkind(trademark) rose which is especially easy for a beginner. I hope. Hardin's sells all their roses on Fortuniana rootstock which makes them well suited for Florida's soil. Ok, so a week or so ago I decided I wanted 1 OGR to put in this spot. Now I have 2 other roses and a perfect spot for my Louis Philippe in the future. I have to stop my rose obsession now because I'm out of room in my only sunny, well draining soil spot. Can't wait to show pictures of Belinda's bloom!
