Beautiful, hardy, disease-resistant Rose
An addition to the Knockout® line of carefree Roses, Blushing Knockout® is as gratifying and foolproof as its fellows. Individually, the blossoms are modest, 3 1/2 inch rounds of light pink petals, but they are borne in such profusion from early summer through early fall that the impact is just what the name claims. As flowers mature, the color fades to shell pink, adding depth to the display. Own-root.
Equally attractive from the gardener's perspective is this shrub Rose's self-reliant nature: it combines an exceptional resistance to blackspot and mildew (even in humid climates) with outstanding winter hardiness, and because the petals fall from the flowers as they fade, this Rose never needs deadheading. If, like many of us, you have banned Roses from your garden as troublesome plants, this is the shrub to make you reconsider.
Use Blushing Knockout® Rose as an everblooming addition to a mixed border with perennials such as violet-blue Nepetas and Perovskia, fragrant Oriental Lilies, and low-growing Scabiosa. (PP 14,700)
Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
