Knock out rose from a cutting

I love bright pretty flowers.  I had several hibiscus flowers in containers but they didn't make it through the winter.  Since I had some knockout roses I decided to try to root some.  I cut a stem off my existing roses after the 2nd bud (branch area) and put honey on the end then put them in the middle of the new containers.  Of the 4 I planted 2 lived.  One actually got a big bloom on the tiny plant.

So far the 2 little plants are doing well.  I have tried 2 new stems for the other planters.  Hopefully they will take root and thrive.  We have had some heavy rain here in GA so that should help all the plants.
