HOME RUN

Shrub Rose

This flame-red offspring of the famous Knock Out kicks the competition up a notch
  • Very disease resilient.
  • Makes a valuable landscape addition.
  • Prefers full sun.
  • Suitable for Zones 4 - 9.
  • No fragrance.
  • Also available as 36" tree

A continuous supply of bright scarlet, five-petaled blooms on a plant. Home Run has a phenomenal fortitude against the dreaded black spot (like its father). But, unlike Dad, it is also completely resistant to powdery mildew & has a higher level of tolerance to downy as well. 

Rounded, bushy, fast-to-flower and nearly always in color. A grand slam in both the landscape and a container. Coast to coast…it's the cleanest. Deepest red in cool temps.
