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.

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.

It's Easy to Plant your Knockout Rose Tree

Specific Directions for Knockout Rose Tree

Your Knockout Roses will thrive in an area the receives full to partial sunlight, and prefer six to eight hours of sunlight a day. Afternoon shade will be more benifical for your Roses than morning shade.

Your natural soil will be great for your Knock out Roses especially if it's well drained, and isn't too light or sandy. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. To help hold the moisture in spread mulch around the base of your Knockoutroses.Knockout roses prefer to receive water at their base instead of receiving water from overhead.

You'll see blooms on your Knockout Roses early every Spring, that will last until your first frost. Knockout Roses produce new blooms every four to six weeks and will love it if you give them organic fertilizer once a month after their first blooming cycle.

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: Rich Aull
I purchased 3 knock out rose trees--the yellow, pink, and red. I LOVE these trees. This red one we had one more year than the other two so it's a bit larger--looks just like the picture! I wish I could upload pics but in any case I was very impressed with all 3 rose trees.

By: Jeanette
My Red knockout Rose Tree is a knockout. I put it in a container on my deck and it is BEAUTIFUL!!! I thought this was the same tree I saw at Lowe's. Boy, was I sadly mistaken. I have one in my front yard and the other on the back deck! Very happy with my purchase. Thank you!!!

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

sun or shade?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2014
Best Answer: My 2 knockout rose trees are planted to where they only receive a little afternoon sun. They both bloomed nicely in the spring and are now (second week in June) blooming again. The tree that gets the most sun is growing and blooming a little better than the one that gets less sun. If I were to do it again, I would plant them where they got more, if not totally sun, but they are clearly tolerating mostly shade just fine.

My knockout rose trees has holes in the leaves. It this a disease? What can I do?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
Best Answer: If the holes are perfectly round or nearly so they are probably the result of cut bee activity. This is an annoying, but not plant threatening pest!

Could I grow roses in a container?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: I tried growing a tree rose in Northern Colorado but it did not survive our cold winter. I received a replacement this spring and planted it in a 22 inch diameter plastic half barrel obtained at Costco. It appears to be growing well with several flower buds starting to appear. I plan to move the plant to a sheltered location in late fall, Check with me in late summer for an update.

Do you leave the rose tree in the ground over the winter?
Betsy S on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: We did leave our rose tree in the ground over two winters. It survived the winter of 2012-2013 very well & came back in the spring of 2013 more robust than ever.

However, with the several Polar Vortex temperature drops & early snows we had here in Ohio the winter of 2013-2014, the rose tree did not survive. Which is a shame, it was a housewarming gift.

what to do if white powdery spots appears?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2014
Best Answer: If white powdery spots appear you have a few options. 1. Take a moist towel or paper towel and see if you can remove the residue. 2. wipe the tree down with a soap and water solution with 3 parts water and one part soap. Use a gentle soap like Dawn. 3. Spray your tree with an organic fungicide. 4. Remove any parts of the tree that have the residue.

I put my tree in an unheated garage over the winter and in spring, it was budding very nicely. I trimmed the branches to even it out and now it looks as if it's dying. What can I do?
Sherri B on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: It could be going through a blooming cycle. It cycles through blooms every 4 to 6 weeks. I would suggest giving it some fertilizer. Follow the care instructions on the link below closely.

We planted this tree about a month ago and all the buds that it arrived with have opened and bloomed we don't see any new buds or new growth is this normal?
Renee S on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: This is normal. Sometimes plants need a month or two to get adjusted to their new environment before growing larger. The tree may also be sending its energy to the existing blooms.

If I plant in large containers do I need to move inside for the winter? I live in Central Illinois.
A shopper on Jun 27, 2014
Best Answer: The Knock Out Rose tree is cold hardy enough to survive the winter inn Illinois, but I would bring it inside during harsh winter storms, or cover it with a sheet at night to protect it from frost.
