Pink Knockout 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' is just as wonderful, with its strong pink blossoms up to 3 inches across and nice compact growth.
