I discovered Flower Friday while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and decided to begin sharing some flower pictures from our gardens along with some information about them. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
Last time I shared: Blazing Star – Prairie Gay Feather
I’ll be creating a Flower Friday page where all previous Flower Friday shares will be available by links.
Coral Knock Out Rose
My mom grabbed some new roses this year for a landscaped area we just put together in the backyard. It was a long time coming and nice to complete finally in 2021. Here’s one of the Knock Out Roses she picked up from the nursery.
We planted three in a row, but this is the one that’s blooming prolifically now. As you can see, the buds start out a very dark coral—somewhat like a red-orange—before they get lighter and lighter fading to light pink.
The pollinators are fond of these flowers too. What I admire most about this particular rose is that they bloom all summer long if you continue to cut the spent blooms. These are bushing out nicely.
Thanks for checking out Flower Friday! What do you have blooming this week? Have a wonderful weekend!
