The Coral Knock Out Rose is a brand new addition to the classic Knock Out Family of roses! This variety brings the reliable reblooming nature of Knock Out Roses to a whole new gorgeous hue. Stunning orange blooms emerge abundantly throughout the year, reblooming reliably beginning in spring and continuing until the first frost of the year. Hot, humid weather produces a richer terra cotta orange than more moderate areas. As the flowers age, they fade to coral pink. This creates a dynamic color variety on just one shrub!
New foliage emerges with a bronze-red hue before maturing to a medium green shade. It grows in a naturally upright and bushy habit, dense with leaves.
Like all Knock Outs, Coral is resistant to black spot disease, and it’s one of the most disease-resistant roses on the market. Additionally, the flowers are self-cleaning, meaning that they fall off once they’re spent. So deadheading is unnecessary!
The Coral Knock Out Rose reaches a maximum size of 4.5′ H x 4.5′ W. However, it takes trimming quite well and can be kept smaller and more compact if so desired. New growth flushes out rapidly, so don’t be afraid to snip away.
Use this rose as a hedge, accent, specimen, or even a container plant. You won’t go wrong!
