There are so many wonderful landscape roses that are also fragrant, so don't settle just for the lovely, but ubiquitous knockout variety that has no fragrance. I have that one too, but there are so many roses with more sizes, shapes, smells, and colors! Spring and Fall are the best times in Texas to look at roses. They really kick into bloom at those times when the days are warm and the nights are cool.

I start my antique and old garden roses from cuttings so they are own root roses and true to type.

It's easy and I can teach you how.  Check out my page on rooting cuttings on the Taylor Daily Press page.
