A Real Knockout
Photograph - Outdoor Color Photo
Red knockout rose bush in the town square in Bellville, Texas, in springtime features a single flower. This one is a real show-stopper, primarily bright red with shocking pink toward the center. Very clean image, unenhanced.
Knockout rose bushes require little or no maintenance. Their bloom cycle produces rich cherry red blooms that will continue until the first hard frost. They are available in several other colors and types, including double red and double pink. All are resistant to black spot, and are drought tolerant and self-cleaning. Knockout rose bushes grow to ten to twelve inches tall.
