A Quick Word about Roses

I have noticed a number of people looking in on my old post about alternatives to Knockout roses. This post was written before Rose Rosette became a plague in this city. I am sorry to say that I will not be planting roses anywhere anymore, and I will be trying to figure out what gardeners can use to replace them. My early choice as substitution will be the small and dwarf crape myrtles. That is not a choice for gardeners much to the north of Tennessee.
