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 the first frost, giving you fluorescent blooms for months.

This self-cleaning rose tree requires no deadheading. 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

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.

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!!

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

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.

You Won't Be Disappointed
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 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.

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

Planting & Care



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


Knock Out® Rose Tree Planting Diretions

A Knockout Rose tree is an ideal landscape tree where the desirability of the classic rose form can be incorporated into a structural arrangement with the benefit of that of a common tree. The Knockout Rose tree is an upright tree which forms a tidy mound 3 to 4 feet high from the base and blooms from June until the first hard frost. Knockout Rose trees and Knockout Rose shrubs complement each other well when planted together.

Knockout Rose trees look best planted in groups of three or more and can be planted to form low rise hedges. They also make for good feature trees when planted alongside Double Knockout Roses. Last year alone, some 3 ½ million Knockout Rose trees (of which many were Double Knockout Roses) were sold making them a very popular choice amongst gardeners.

Seasonal information: They are upright shrubs that form a tidy mound 3 to 4 feet high and bloom from June to the first hard frost. In spring, trim any broken or dead branches. You can shape the Knockout rose at this time. In zones with cold, wet winters, give your Knockout rose winter protection by planting on the leeward side of buildings or walls. Or you can wrap snow fencing loosely around the rose and cover with straw.

Location: Select a well-drained site in full to partial sun. If you choose partial sun make sure your roses receive at least six hours of direct sun a day (afternoon shade is better than morning shade). If you have clay or sandy soil, work well-rotted manure or compost into the planting site.

Planting instructions: Space three feet apart if planting multiple trees.
1) You should start by digging a hole twice as wide and twice as deep as the root ball.
2) Mix the manure or compost with the soil you have removed.
3) Back fill the soil until you have a hole the same size or slightly larger than the container the rose is in.
4) Plant the rose at the same depth as it is in the container. 
5) Mulch around the base of the tree to keep competing weeds and grasses from growing.

Watering: Keep Knockout Roses moist at all times. Water around the roots rather than overhead. Mulching will greatly assist with soil moisture retention.

Fertilization: Fertilize with an organic rose fertilizer once a month. Use organic fertilizer rather than synthetic fertilizers as synthetics 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.

Pests and Disease: Knockout roses are resistant to rust, black spot and powdery mildew. 

Pruning: Avoid pruning the Knockout roses at all in the first 2 to 3 years. Sterilize your sharp pruning shears with hot water or rubbing 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.

Susan W on Jun 26, 2018
I love red roses and the Knock Out Rose Tree is very unique, and that appeals to me. I have a spot in my front yard about 3' in diameter where a diseased tree was removed. I've been looking for just the right thing to put in that spot. I was about to give up and make it grass. Doing another search for the just the right thing, this immediately caught my eye. Showed a picture to my wife and she was sold. The clincher: a sale price at a savings of 39% AND free shipping. A no brainer!

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.
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.
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.
Do they have thorns?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do.
Is this red or pink knock out rose? thx
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Deep red.
Can this tree be grown indoors?
Kevin W on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I live in western Kentucky and mine is outside. Grows wonderful!
do deer like them?
kathy b on Jul 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Deer and rabbits like them. You should use a rejection spray. Also, they don't survive the winters in South Dakota, even with coverage. Otherwise they are beautiful!!
Do they grow in shade ?
Davef on Jul 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine does well in shade on the north west side of house that only gets 1 to 2 hrs of indirect sun daily....hearty and blooms heavily

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 purchased 5 trees last spring they all made it through winter and have buds on them. They look very healthy. They don't look Like the picture though and lack the ball shape on the top. What should I do to alleviate their nonuniform appearance?

Can they handle a lot of water?
Shari M on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Keep Knockout Roses moist at all times. Water around the roots rather than overhead.
When do you plant them and what kind of soil preperation do you need?
Joyce T on Dec 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Late fall and or early spring is a good time to plant. You should start by digging a hole twice as wide and twice as deep as the root ball. Mix the manure or compost with the soil you have removed. Back fill the soil until you have a hole the same size or slightly larger than the container the rose is in. Plant the rose at the same depth as it is in the container. Space plants three feet apart.
Do rose trees need covering for winter?
Bernadine M on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No they don't need covering. For extra protection you could mulch around it.
A bit early for this question but I am wondering.... When preparing for winter in Wisconsin, does a knockout rose tree need to be mulched in fall? If so, how is this done?
kim r on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you will want to do a heavy mulch as it starts to really cool off in your area. We have a great blog about winter protection for your plants. Our favorite is 3 to 6 inch layer of mulch.

jerry l on Sep 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Knock Out Rose Tree would work for you.
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 in Illinois, but I would bring it inside during harsh winter storms, or cover it with a sheet at night to protect it from frost.
