Paul Zimmerman, in his book, Everyday Roses: How to Grow Knock Out and Other Easy-Care Garden Roses, provides some historical context to explain why easy-to-grow roses are, in fact, a big deal. Zimmerman observes that many of the roses vigorously marketed to the public in the past were hard to grow. Gardeners stuck with the difficult task of trying to care for these “divas,” as Zimmerman calls them, and they became frustrated. Eventually, word got around: Roses are hard to grow.
