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!

I’ll be creating a Flower Friday page where all previous Flower Friday shares will be available by links. 

Today’s share:

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.

At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the fading blooms, which happens with all the Knock Out Roses. It took some getting used to with all the different shades of flowers, but I truly adore these now. The variety of color is gorgeous.

      1. Cosmos are sold as bedding plants here and it’s the first time I’ve had one, so I’m not sure if they reseed. Regardless, I’ll be getting them again. Great value for money 💚
