I like this rose much better than Knockout Red. It is a true red rather than pinkish. It has a wonderful scent. I have only lost one bush out of 20 planted 10 years ago. All the plants survived our record cold winter and now our above average rainfall this summer. If I had any more places to plant them, I would buy more.
Home Run® Landscape Rose Rosa x
- Hardy Zones
- 4 - 9
- Mature Size
- 42 - 48 Inches
Highly disease resistant. Heat tolerant. Cold hardy. Requires no deadheading. True red.
Mass plantings, mixed borders. A very low-maintenance yet colorful plant for sunny areas.
Little care is needed. Trim to shape in spring, and apply a controlled release fertilizer. This rose does not need deadheading or winter protection. Prefers moist, well-drained soil.
Home Run is absolutely, positively the best true-red rose with continuous blooms and top level disease resistance to both black spot and powdery mildew.
It has a high level of tolerance to downy mildew as well. Plus it's heat tolerant, cold hardy and requires no deadheading.
It prefers full sun, and will grow to 3 1/2--4 feet in height and width in your landscape. It is hardy in zones 4-9 and will bring wonderful color to your garden for years. You still have time to plant it this autumn, trim to shape comes spring, then simply sit back and enjoy. No more spraying, we promise!
Like its father (Knock Out), Home Run has excellent resistance to black spot. Unlike Knock Out, Home Run is also completely resistant to powdery mildew and has a higher level of tolerance to downy mildew as well.

We have these roses in the front of our winery. They look fantastic, blooming all summer long with no attention other than a light shaping in spring. I have killed many a rose in my life, these are by far the most fuss free rose I have ever grown. I recommend them to all my rose killing friends!

This rose is indeed very red, and quite pretty. The blooms were a little sparse for me. I plan on moving my three bushes to a sunnier spot next year to see if it blooms better. Proven Winer says it blooms on new wood, but that is wrong.Missy SouleMichiganUnited States4 years ago
