Northern Florida is a beautiful land. They say we have all Four Seasons here: Spring, Summer, The Fall and.... Christmas! Right around that time my beautiful camelias start to bloom
The main pest in our area is deer. These dainty creatures will eat everything that blooms! Especially they love roses. The deer wait for the rose buds just to start to open and then next morning the whole rose bed is bare. Roses are like chocolates for them.
IJust like the deer, I am a big fan of roses. The only difference is - I do not eat them.
Knock out roses are the easiest to grow, they are resistant to pets and disease.
