All the Gorgeous Color and Easy Care of the Knock Out Rose Tree

Rich blooms in abundance with no maintenance needed!

Knock Out® Roses have set the standard for bloom color, size, and adaptability.

Now, horticulturists have bred a tree with the same characteristics! The Knock Out® 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 Knock Out® 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 Knock Out® 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 Knock Out® 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.

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!
January 1, 2013
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

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

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!!

Love these trees -
I purchased 3 of these knock out trees This tree is beautiful - I don't know how they get it it looking so perfect as in the picture with no stake and perfectly rounded with so many blooms, mine aren't so round, they grow so fast and are difficult to keep perfectly rounded like this, but thy look beautiful and are knockout with roses - I also love their height as they go perfectly behind my hedge.

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.
January 1, 2013
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

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.

The red KO trees deliver all that is promised! They bloomed within weeks of sprouting the first leaves--I planted them in early March. They are definitely worth the $!

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

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Knock Out® Rose Tree

Knock Out® Rose Tree Planting Diretions 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 beneficial 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 Knockout roses. Knockout roses prefer to receive water at their bases 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. Planting & Care

I purchased the Knock Out Rose Tree because I was looking for a perennial with low maintenance and a lot of continuous blooms. After reading all the reviews on here and doing additional research I believe I have found the perfect tree. I won't be receiving my plant until May, so if everything I've read on this site holds true, I will be back on letting you know how happy I am with my purchase.

I need a focal point small tree along a walk way that would not be block other plantings.
John B on Jul 20, 2016
This tree took 6 weeks to start blooming but since then continuos beautiful roses,We love watching it .
cindy m on Jul 18, 2016
I picked this and all of the others because I am doing a memorial garden in honor of my son who passed away 3 years ago . He is a Cincinnati Reds fan and I am having my garden filled with the brightest whites and brilliant reds I could find. All of the plants I have bought from here have been strong, healthy and brilliant vibrant whites and reds! I have been so pleased with their performance ! This is definitely worth the money . It is not the same as you can buy at any hardware store.
Debi H on Jul 5, 2016
We had 2 matching trees and 1 of them died. I was hoping it would be covered but after several attempts to talk to someone and try, I decided to just replace it and avoid all the hazel. I have always had very good results with Fast Growing Trees but wasn't very happy with this situation. However, it doesn't look good without the matching tree, so just decided to replace. As I said, we have always had good results but not this time.

When should we prune our rose tree how how often do we add the fertilizer pellet/tablet to the roots? We got the tree around August 2014. Please advise. Thank you!
The Guys on Jan 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Avoid pruning the Knockout roses at all in the first 2 to 3 years. Sterilize your sharp pruning shears with hot water or alcohol. This guarantees a cleaner, healthier cut. Always prune at an angle and not straight across. Activate the Knockout into growth and blooming by pruning it back a little in the spring after the last hard freeze. Keep the rose under control or if you want it smaller than it’s 3-feet wide by 4-inches tall size by pruning it back in the late summer or early fall. Remove dead or old canes at any time. Also cut very thin canes that might be coming up from the ground. Prune your mature plants by using the 1/3 rule each year in the spring. Remove 1/3 of the oldest canes and any stems that are damaged, diseased or dead.
Fertilize with an organic rose fertilizer once a month. Use organic fertilizer rather than synthetic fertilizers. Synthetic fertilizers can promote weak growth, and your rose will have more foliage and less flowers. Even though Double Knockout roses are disease-resistant, they still need adequate air circulation, created by properly spacing plants

Do the knockout rose trees need to become dormant in winter?
sandra s on Oct 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they do go dormant.
How far does the root system spread when planted in the ground?
M W on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The roots will spread about as far as the foliage, which is 3-4 feet. They might extend a little farther as the plant matures but rose roots are not aggressive and fit in with other plants quite well..
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: Holes in the leaves are a result of a bug not a disease. You can spray your rose tree with an all natural organic pesticide.
Can these roses grow indoors?
jeremy r on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The rose tree would probably STAY ALIVE indoors -- with enough artificial sunlight -- unless it was inside some sort of greenhouse or hothouse. But merely staying alive is a far cry from GROWING. Moreover, it should be kept in mind that the root ball expands as the rose tree grows. I doubt it would respond too well to constant changes in the pot or planter it's planted in. My advice: Keep it outdoors where it belongs.
what is the best time of year to plant this rose tree?
pwarren on Sep 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The best time to plant this Rose Tree is in the early spring or early fall.
sun or shade?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted in direct sun and it is doing great!
Do they have thorns?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes but they are somewhat smaller then the ones on the bushes. cheers john
Could I grow roses in a container?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You sure can. So long as the pot gives ample room for the roots. Roses will deplete soil nutrients more readily in a pot then they would in the ground so watch for that. For a starter, be sure the pot is no smaller than 15" diameter. Then plan to transplant in two about two years.
i planted one of these about a foot from my house and its gotten pretty big will it interfere with the foundation of my house>?
Michael A on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Though rose roots probably won't do much damage to your house's foundation, a foot is too close to give your rose room to grow and look its best. The top will spread to be about 3 feet across, or about 1 1/2 feet from the stem, so your rose tree needs at least 2 feet of clearance all sides just to accommodate the plant, and more to keep it from crowding your house. A further benefit of giving your Rose more space is that it promotes good air circulation, which helps keep your plant disease-free.

I recommend that you dig up your rose tree and move it a minimum of 3 feet from your house, and 4 or 5 feet might be even better, if you have the room. Allow plenty of room for the root ball when you dig, making your cut around 12-18 inches from the trunk all the way around, and making the hole you move it to a foot or more bigger than the root ball. Best time to do this is in late winter, when the plant is dormant, but it can be moved when in active growth if you are prepared to make sure it has plenty of water.

Good luck with your Rose Tree, and I hope it gives you many years of enjoyment!
is the knock out rose tre red or pink?
deborah on Jan 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's red, but not a deep red. It has more pink tones and is very pretty.
Is this red or pink knock out rose? thx
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Deep red.
What is the life expectancy of these rose trees?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Under the right conditions Knock Out Rose Trees can last for decades.
t live in Kalamazoo Mi. The area near my house gets shade to partial shade till 3 pm and full sun 3pm till 7pm. Will that be enough sun for knockout rose trees? Also, our winters can get pretty darn cold 2014 winter was harsh. Is there a way to protect them from harsh winters?
brownthumb? on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think the reverse of what you get (e.g., full sun for 4 hours in the MORNING) would probably be better.
But these rose trees are pretty sturdy, and those 4 hours in the afternoon likely will still work for you. As to winter protection, the big thing is the stalk, or "cane." I use foam pipe wrap (it's cylindrical in shape, but with a cut down it). Simply put it around a growing cane, then either tape it closed, or you can use soft rubber plant ties to do it. Think of "pipe wrap", only not as tightly applied.
Zone 5 hits 20 below zero sometimes 30 or 40 for short periods. Do you think this could survive?
Feces on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are hardy down to -10.
does this rose tree comes in bare root? if yes how tall?
Beatrice H on Oct 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We should start shipping out bare root in a month or so. Usually the size is around 2-3 ft or 3-4 ft.
do you have a tree rose with a blue flower?
sheila j on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Knockout Rose trees only come in pink, red and yellow.
Do these trees survive in zone 6? I have had 2 local nurseries tell me they die in this area. I am in North Idaho.
dancnfish on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Based on the growing zone map, it sounds like they may survive in Zone 6. I live in Denver (zone 5) and the rose tree I bought two years ago has died (probably due to a couple of freezes). I did not plant it in the ground but in a large planter, which may have made it susceptible to the elements. I recently bought another rose tree for this spring (to be in planter again) - sure hope it survives through the winters. I may need to follow the planting instructions more carefully though.
How big the rose trees they when purchased?
Connie P on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 3-4 feet tall. We have been very happy with our rose tree. We live in south Texas and it has tolerated the hot humid Summer's here with blooms all summer, and we got a hard freeze twice this winter down to 22 degrees. February has warmed up and it has new leaves on it.
I live in fresno ca. Zone 9. Will Red Knock out survive?
Mike R on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if they will survive in the crazy climate extremes of central Texas, they will flourish in Fresno. Mine has survived -8 degrees to 20 days straight of 100 degrees are more.
STEVEN J on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, many, many more - at least on mine, the branches were end to end thorns
Are the roses red? Thanks!
LaurenEspo on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, just like the attached picture. I did have to stake the tree rose because it gets so top-heavy by the end
of the season. But it is top-heavy because of all the blooms, just loaded, all the time!
Can they handle a lot of water?
Shari M on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As far as I can tell, this tree can handle quite a bit of water. We got a lot of rain this year, and the tree did just fine.
Do you leave the rose tree in the ground over the winter?
Betsy S on Jun 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In Oklahoma I keep it in a pot and move into the sunroom over the winter, but it can quite satisfactorily be left outside here.
Do u trim back in the fall?
Bridget C on Jul 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They grow back so fast, I trim them 3 times a year
How can I tell if my Knock Out Rose Tree is ALIVE?
Archer on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Where do you live? It is supposed to do well zone 5-9. It is a little early in cold areas. You can google "how to prune" a rose tree. I really don't know. Know on regular roses you have winter die back and have to prune that off.
Do rose trees need covering for winter?
Bernadine M on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know because it was a gift. I sent the gift in December and the last I heard two years later. That it is beautiful planted outside. I think it depends where in Floirda you live.
Can this tree survive Massachusetts cold winters? I bought one at Home Depot and it died.
Donna K on Aug 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Am not certain about how low the temperature would have been in Mass. but the Knockouts that I have survived just above zero and up into the low 100's. Think if the roots were ;mulched extremely well, the bush would probably survive even if you had to prune the bush in the Spring. They are great roses -- good luck!
What color is the bloom and is it a double bloom?
Ramona D on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This was a gift for someone. They said how beautiful it was and it was growing well, but did not specify other than that. I will try to get specific answers for you, but know the trees and plants from this co are excellent!
