My neighbor and I both have Knock out Roses, mines are maybe a year older, her Roses are planted in a bed next to the house (foundation), my roses are in middle of the yard. Why do her Roses always look like they are in a Jackson & Perkins magazine? My Roses look good too, but not always.

How annoying! Your neighbor may be pruning and feeding her roses more often than you feed and prune yours. Pruning encourages lots of healthy new growth and lots of flowers; feeding in the spring and again 6 weeks later will keep the foliage and stems healthy. Try pruning yours back in the spring and again in mid-summer. I think you'll notice a difference. Enjoy!
