drift rose series
I have 5 original knock outs in a mixed border. I love the continuous color they provide but they have gotten huge despite pruning several times a season- and pruning them is no easy task with those giant thorns. Although the tag on knockouts says they grow 3-4 feet, mine grow 8-10 feet. I'm looking for a smaller replacement and a nursery owner recently recommended drift roses. How does the drift series compare to knockouts for continous bloom and disease resistance? Is the red drift rose similar in color to the original red knockout?
