Descriptive
Created by Bill Radler, the hybridizer of the world-famous Knock Out® Rose, The Rainbow Knock Out Rose is more compact and even more floriferous than its famous predecessors.  It is also more resistant to rust and mildew and should perform extremely well in any North American garden. Winter hardy zone 4, this new creation will have a nice display of hips late in the season to complement the late fall blooms.

Planted in Nassau County Extension Demonstration Garden
