One of my blog followers noted I was counting down with number of flowers blooms in recent posts, so voila! Here is my favorite 'one' - the Knock Out rose.
This beautiful rose is an answer to prayer for all those who love roses but can't grow them on a barrier island. Knock Out roses are blackspot resistant, drought tolerant, and even tolerate salt air (albeit mine where somewhat scalded in the high winds of Hurricane Ike).
The only problem I have with these beautiful roses is photographing them, as I've mentioned before. Their color is so brilliant that they seem to glow!
