Hi. So we moved into a new home that came with 2 beautiful rose bushes. Im new to caring for roses and am very interested in learning! Could someone help me identify what rose this is? Also, these bushes are 6-7 ft high blocking my main walkway to my front door. Id like to reduce the size significantly but its October and im afraid i may damage it. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thank you kindly,

Hello and welcome!
It could be Carefree Wonder...just a guess.
Whatever it is, it is stunning!
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Hi all-
So i did find the answer on a different forum. I have "Blushing Knockout" roses which are actually easy to care for. And they are perfect for my hardiness zone of 6b-5b.

Thanks again and looking forward to participating!
