Resistant to blackspot, powdery mildew, and rust -- no wonder it can bloom so heavily and long!

By far the most floriferous Knock Out®.
Plant Patent #17,346.

cv: 'RADcor.' The Knock Out® series just keeps getting better, and Rainbow Knock Out® is without a doubt its greatest star yet. It is the most floriferous Knock Out® (by far) and very disease resistant, with almost complete resistance to blackspot, powdery mildew, and rust. It reblooms ceaselessly from spring through fall in most climates, with lovely single blooms that change colors as they mature. It is even lightly scented, unlike most shrub Roses. What more could any Rose lover ask? This was named one of "The Easisest Roses You Can Grow" by Better Homes and Gardens, thanks to its famous disease resistance as well as its "cute, coral pink blooms"!

The blooms on this rounded, bushy 3- to 4-foot shrub open orange from coral-pink buds, then quickly turn a soft coral-pink shading to gold at the base, surrounding a yellow center. As they mature, they gradually turn light coral. Just 2 inches wide but packed with color and the scent of sweetbriar, they are a magnificent sight on a fully-blooming shrub, when the various colors of buds, new blooms, and mature flowers are present at once.

After the blooms finally pass, the shrub covers itself in bright orange hips that persist through winter, delighting the birds in your garden. This trouble-free, very high-performing and beautiful Rose makes an ideal hedge, driveway planting, ribbon of color in the perennial or shrub border, or container choice. Winner of a 2007 All-America Rose Selection Award, it is superior in every way. Zones 5-9.

Unusually pink, easy, and BIG HINT .....

This is gorgeous! It's still blooming because it's been so warm, though it began blooming IMMEDIATELY in the Spring. I did give it a bucket of water daily for a week, decreasing after and I kept it nicely watered. Every week I removed the dead buds and they removed quickly by hand with a little pull. This made it flower all over.

I am relatively new to garden but now have over 30 rose bushes. I have several knockouts. These bushes are very easy to maintain as far as disease and pests but as cutting roses...they make better display roses
