It's hard not to fall in love with a plant that is created for the sole purpose of being really big, incredibly beautiful and not dying. My mother came up to visit me just after my surgery and when she saw me oogling the double knockout roses outside the grocery store, she bought me one.
Now, just a few weeks later it's blooming like crazy and I find myself going outside just to stare at it for a few minutes each day. It really is beautiful. Best of all, I haven't killed it yet.
