They are all very lovely. Your climber looks great filling out that fence and knockouts look great.

Thank you!

Quadra seems to be a long lasting bloom... and the fragrance is nice, though milder than I like. It's a new rose for me, and I think it's worthy of growing just for its color, shape and long lasting blooms!

The Knock Outs make nice additions to the perennial beds, where I have them planted... a nice mid-sized plant with lots of lovely color early in summer. While not my favorite rose, they definitely have merit as a bright part of the gardens!
