Double Knock Out®

Shrub Roses Patent

As you might suspect, this sister seedling of the famed Knock Out® has some sisterly similarities – same great black spot resistance, same deep pink color & similar grey-green foliage. Yet, as is often the case with sisters, there are those all-important differences to tout – a few more petals & a more compact rounded habit. Elsewise, if you love one, you’ll likely love the other. A valuable East-of-the-Rockies Shrub. Subject to some powdery mildew.
