Knockout Rose —– is the Featured Plant Of the Week

Knock Out™ is a compact, tidy shrub rose and resistant to black-spot.  Blooms are fire engine red in cool weather and a cherry red in the summer months. The foliage is a dark purplish green and turns to burgundy in the fall. Tough foliage and blooms. Knock Out™ is drought tolerant and If left un-pruned, The Knock Out® Family of Roses can easily grow to be more than 3-4′ wide x 3-4′ tall. Periodic trims will keep them maintained at a smaller size. A once a year cut (to about 12-18″ above the ground) in early spring (after the last hard frost) is also recommended for maximum performance.
