Season not winter in Fla. and identifying planted roses of 24 inground - Knowledgebase Question

Question by joanbaby

I am trying to grow my rosesand keep up with the new ones on the market. I have found that your roses are always going to give a good show. I purchased 3 knock-out rose bushes. We in Fla. are not having a winter like we expected. Will the roses do well in the summer even though I have cut back all 24 bushes and they continue to put on earily leaves. I clip off any buds for they need their rest. But sence they are not getting the rest they expected will I still get my six inch blossoms? With all the roses I have I didn't keep a log of what their names are. Is there a catalogue available to research names of them. I know I have more roses by your company. Thank You joani

Joan,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Yes those Knock Out roses will just keep on going. Just start fertilizing them in about a month and keep them adequately watered and frequently fed and they'll bloom up a storm!

Go to the following web site which will allow you to search for Monrovia plants by name, and type in "rosa" which is the genus name of all the roses. You'll get a listing of varieties which you can select from for more info and in some cases a photo to help you identify your mystery plants.
