Knockout roses under pine tree
Ok, I've been searching the site and cannot find the answer to this question. Maybe its crazy, but I want to know if anyone has had success with planting knockout roses under pine trees? I have a tall, sparsely branched pine tree in my front yard and I'm itching to plant something wonderful and colorful under it. So that led me to think of knockout roses. I'm concerned about the light shading the tree provides and the acidic soil. Will that spell doom for the roses?
