Description

Lightly-fragrant, 2- to 3-inch (5-8 cm) blooms of soft blushing pink cover this plant from late June to Autumn. Vernalization is not required for flowering. Habit is compact, rounded and bushy; foliage is a rich bronze green. Flowers are self-cleaning, yielding to attractive hips. Blushing Knock Out® is a soft-pink sport of Conard-Pyle’s famous carefree red Shrub Rose, Knock Out®, an All-America Rose Selections winner in 2000. Like its celebrated sibling, Blushing Knock Out® shrugs off drought, disease, and cold winters – a major breeding achievement. It is highly resistant to the rose-lover’s banes, black spot and powdery mildew, even in humid conditions. This means clean, attractive foliage all summer and well into Autumn. Discovered by Green Leaf Plants®, Lancaster, PA.
