I bought very small knockout roses a couple of years ago for this strip. But the crepe myrtle (not blooming yet but supposed to be about the same pink as the knockout roses) I rooted to be sure of the color. They seed readily but if I just dig one up, I plant it in a nearby wooded area. I want these to match the roses so I root them. The irises were given to me by various people and so were the daylilies. I mulch, but I still have a bit of weeding to do.
