American rose brand expands with miniature ’breakthrough’


Star Roses and Plants introduces a miniature version of Knock Out Roses which is, according to the American company, a breakthrough in the range of garden roses.

The miniature version is called The Petite Knock Out and has the same qualities as the Knock Out Roses, says Star Roses and Plants (part of Ball Horticultural). Like flowering ability, bright colour and easy maintenance. According to the American company the mini-rose is a breakthrough because it is ’extremely black spot resistant’.

Star Roses and Plants has several rose and shrub brands on the market. This includes Bushel and Berry which has the original name BrazelBerry on the European market.

For years Knock Out Roses are popular in American gardens and landscapes. The first rose was introduced 20 years ago, reports Nursery Management.
