I wanted to talk for a minute about the new White Out Rose. The White Out Rose was developed by the same guy that the other Knockout Roses were. If you remember, the Knockout Rose is a great rose for any application because of its lack of maintenance requirements. It doesn’t get the rose black spot and can be pruned just like a regular shrub.
The new White Out Rose, if you notice, does not have the name Knock in it. It looks just like a Knockout, but I am being told that it gets blackspot. That would mean you have to spray this rose probably twice per year to keep them looking decent. Blackspot will make the leaves turn black and fall off, so if you don’t spray, your bush will have blooms and no leaves.
I just wanted to give you the news that I heard about yesterday on this new rose bush that people have been waiting so anxiously for.
