    The Knock Out Roses will get about 5ft x 5ft here if you don't keep them in check. I am really liking the new Drift Roses over the Nearly Wild rose. They follow suit on the Knock out with less spraying and no dead heading The nearly wild is an older variety and does require spraying to keep the black spot from denuding them. The drifts are truly a ground cover rose and come in an array of beautiful colors. I have been utilizing them in my designs and couldn't be happier with a rose. They are also fragrant, or at least some of the colors are.

    It looks like a Nearly Wild in your picture, light pink, single bloom. That is the prettiest one I have ever seen and hopefully it will stay that way for you.
