Never Worry About Black Spot or Powdery Mildew Again
Grand Haven, Michigan, March 2011 – Now the “most disease resistant rose on the market today” is available in both red and pink colors, with the addition of the Pink Home Run® to the Proven Winners® ColorChoice® line of flowering shrubs.
Home Run roses are recently developed hybrids, derived from a bestselling black spot-free rose, with the added benefit of the highest resistance to powdery mildew. Home Run roses are easy-to-grow, thrive in most landscape conditions and require little maintenance. They are also tolerant of heat, humidity and drought, bloom from spring until frost and produce nearly non-stop blooms.
Pink Home Run is identical in every way to Home Run rose except for the flower color. This sport of Home Run has showy 3-inch wide, 5-petal blossoms of an intense shade of pink. And just like Home Run, it produces fresh flowers every day and requires no deadheading.
“You can imagine my surprise when we found a pink-colored sport of Home Run one day in our fields,” said Tom Carruth, director of research and marketing for Weeks Roses, and breeder of Home Run and Pink Home Run. “This single branch on the red-colored shrub had mutated to produce pink blossoms. Now that one branch has produced enough plants to introduce the all-new Pink Home Run.”
“Home Run roses are the most disease resistant rose on the market today. Now you can enjoy roses in your landscaping all season without the need to spray – or even deadhead.”
