Knockout Roses In Rain. Rosaceae

Two knockout roses (Rosa “Radrazz’), in the family of Rosaceae, which grow in zones 5 to 9 in the USA. These roses are growing in the Prairies and Lakes region of Texas and covered with raindrops from a recent shower. The roses line a curved rock-lined path, and elegant green rose leaves fill the background in bokeh.
Commonly called shrub roses, rosa is a genus of about 150 species of deciduous (occasionally evergreen) shrubs and climbers noted for their beautiful, often fragrant, single, semi-double, or double flowers. These compact shrub roses grow between four and ten feet tall and as wide. They need very little care but respond to having spent blossoms snipped off.
I’ve also learned from experience that they love coffee grounds and banana peels. They bloom in clusters from May until frost. I’ve found they bloom whenever they feel like it and pay little or no attention to the calendar. If they’re not blooming, I think they’re probably resting.
These rosaceae, or knockout roses, are blooming outdoors in a home garden. They almost continually produce beautiful blossoms. Mine must be of the evergreen variety, for they survived the “snowpocalypse” that devastated Texas and other states in early 2021.
