Knockout Rose Tree

The brightest roses... on a tree!


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

2-3 ft.

Rich blooms in abundance with no maintenance needed!

Knockout Roses have set the standard for bloom color, size, and adaptability.

Now, horticulturists have bred a tree with the same characteristics! The Knockout Rose Tree has raised the bar for disease resistance, and is as carefree as they come. Hardy and reliable, your rose tree will bloom from early spring to first frost, giving you fluorescent blooms for months.

This self cleaning rose tree requires no dead heading. Other roses require you to prune off the dead blooms so that new ones will grow. These blooms simply fall off when they start looking undesirable.

Your Knockout Rose Trees come pruned to promote more branching. More branching means more blooms!

Disease resistant, even to Blackspots that harm so many other roses.

Adaptable to various soil types and drought tolerant, too! Reaching a mature height of 4-7 feet, your Knockout Rose Tree will work in any area of your landscape.

Plant in containers or directly in the ground. Creates a stunning entryway, pool accent or garden focal point.

A versatile tree that stays smothered in roses for up to 6 months out of the year.

We prune your Knockout Roses before we ship them out to give you an explosion of growth when you receive them.

This is the hottest rose introduction in years. These trees will quickly sell out, so order yours now.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Knockout Rose Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Knockout Rose Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Knockout Rose Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Knockout Rose Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

A few months after receiving the tree it died. I'm very disappointed :( I do have other plants growing beautifully, so it is not a question of care.

By: Darlene
Just received the Red Knockout Rose Tree and it is beautiful! I ordered rose trees from another company and received sticks. This one has foliage and is very healthy. I liked it so much, I ordered another one. I purchased crape myrtles and they too are very healthy. Glad I found Fast Growing Trees Nursery, as my yard is going to beautiful thanks to them. Recommend them highly!

By: Jim
Bought 5 of these trees. The shipping container and wrapping were outstanding. Arrived in perfect condition. The trees themselves took a few weeks to settle in; but are now producing beautiful blossoms. We'll be back for more. We're in New England.

my red knockout rose trees are doing beautiful and are growing great, but my pink one is not doing so well need to work on the pink ones more before you sell them.

By: Christopher Gore
I purchased 2 of these last summer/fall for my mother and planted them for her. A local nursery had informed after the fact to not expect rose trees to live past winter. Well... it's well into spring now and these from Fast-Growing are both doing great so far.

By: Shelly
I bought 1 red rose tree. 1month later I bought myself another one. I am so happy I did they are beautiful. I love them. Thank you so much

By: diane
My tree looks beautiful, still on the 22nd of September it keeps blooming everyday, so full of beautiful roses. I love it.

You will not be sorry! I can't tell you the amount of compliments I receive on this tree. I am thinking of ordering another and my in-laws are getting one too.

By: Theresa
Love the roses on this tree. It started blooming with a month of being planted. I have it planted in a large pot on my driveway, it took a bit to figure out a way to stake it so it would be ok in the wind but it's doing wonderful now. Really enjoy it!

By: Ramona Rodriguez-Surdez
When the tree first arrived didn't look very nice, but once it settled in and started to bloom, love it! The color is very vibrant and lots and lots of roses!

By: Gerri Aubert
I received my Empress tree and it was well wrapped and looked very healthy. L am very anxious to see it grow. Have ordered several other trees and can't wait to get then.

By: nick solomos
the tree is beautiful and doing fine.

By: Carol
I received my "stick" with bare grafts on it with the roots wrapped carefully very early in the season and planted it immediately in a pot just to keep the roots damp. When it was finally planted in the ground maybe a month later, within 2 weeks leaves started to sprout. I had a rose within 30 days. July 11 I have more than 17 buds and it has formed a nice ball shape. the color is a "Knockout"
Love it!!!

By: Jamie
It is a beautiful tree, very hardy. We have had great blooms each year and the growth is incredible! However, after any given rain you can expect that your tree will be bent over from weight- VERY top heavy. We had a particularly heavy rain recently and found the top of the tree laying on the ground (happened twice). Must be staked/ stabilized!

By: connie kelbaugh
This EXACT same rose tree sells at Lowes for $30 EACH. This is NOT a $100 rose tree, as I was promised by Fast Growing Trees when I ordered it. They are small; slow growing!! Disappointed!!

By: Sharon
We bought the pink one and it is has been gorgeous since spring...still is! very healthy and low maintenance
