'Pink Knock Out' Rose
Few roses make a really big splash in our region, perhaps because so many do so well. But the red rose called 'Knock Out' got everyone's attention for its bold color, floriferous habit, and pest-free leaves. 'Pink Knock Out' -- available this spring -- will be just as wonderful. A strong shade of pink, flowers up to 3 inches across, and nice compact growth guarantees popularity for this new introduction.
