Sunny Knock Out® Shrub Rose
The Only Fragrant Knock Out®!
Just when you think the Knock Out® series may be complete, another new look comes along to astound and delight! Sunny Knock Out® has large blooms that open buttery yellow, then mature through all stages of cream and ivory to pure white. But its most interesting feature is that unlike the others in the series, it is fragrant, releasing a woodsy, apple-like scent best described as sweetbriar.
These single blooms reach 3 inches across and radiate soft, bright color from late spring until first hard frost. Very abundant, they lighten and brighten any setting, and once they are fully blooming, the combination of yellow, cream, and white blooms is breathtaking. This plant tends to repeat in great waves, so it is seldom caught out of bloom over its long, long season!
Like other Knock Outs®, Sunny is very resistant to blackspot as well as to mildew, rust, and Japanese beetles. Vigorous and very well-branched, it reaches 4 to 4½ feet tall and spreads nearly as wide, with excellent branching studded with buds and blooms. A carefree joy for any sunny setting from the rose garden to a hedge, foundation, or border, Sunny Knock Out® is not to be missed!
If you like the idea of a rose that blooms heavily over 3 seasons without spraying or pruning, resists blackspot and other problems, and always looks fresh and tidy, you must try other Knock Outs® as well. Zones 5-9.
