Pink Double Knock Out® Shrub Rose
An improvement over its famous sister Double Knock Out®!
Pink Double Knock Out® begins flowering in late spring, each 3- to 3 1/2-inch bloom boasting about 20 petals, a light sweet scent, and a pointed star shape, thanks to nicely recurved outer petals. Very profuse, the flowers continue all summer and even into fall. They are borne in clusters of up to 5 all along flowering stems on well-branched, compact shrubs. You could not find a longer, more profuse bloom season from any other rose. And as if this weren't enough, Pink Double Knock Out® self-cleans -- the spent flowers drop neatly to the ground, so you don't have to deadhead them!
But that is only one of Pink Double Knock Out's® merits. This vigorous little shrub offers unsurpassed resistance to blackspot, COMPLETE tolerance of downy mildew, and abundant, healthy foliage that looks good even in those rare out-of-bloom moments. Plant it right in the middle of the shrub border, use it as a hedge or foundation planting, or even put it in a container -- it is attractive enough to stand alone, yet doesn't mind a little crowding. Anything less like the traditional finicky hybrid tea rose is hard to imagine!
If you are a Knock Out® fan (and who isn't?), be sure to check out other members of this exciting family: Double and Rainbow. These are easily the best landscape roses, and they have our vote for the most carefree and high-performing rose series ever. And now with Pink Double, they go safely into zone 10!
Crown hardy to -20 degrees F, this 3- to 4-foot-high and -wide shrub withstands drought, heat, humidity and, in addition to blackspot and downy mildew, pests such as the Japanese beetle, leafhopper, and rose midge. It is a landscape treasure you must not miss! Zones 5-9.
