I bought these b/c of the assurance that not much work was required. THESE ROSES HOLD TRUE TO THEIR DESCRIPTION. I ordered 2 3-gallon bushes & a rose tree. I have since ordered 5 more 3-gallon roses & another rose tree. I had roses INSTANTLY after planting & Im no gardener by far. These roses are so trouble-free & I am so pleased! My roses are the talk of my housing community!

What a delight to purchase 20 of these for a garden wall and see them absolutely explode with new growth and height. Actually, I can not believe that we have to deadhead ( remove dead blossom) every third day at this time. I used some iron and a bit of Epsom to get them going and they have survived the cold, freezing and hot 103-plus weather and been a delight to see in the yard. Not as tall yet but they are flowering as the picture here shows. Thank you FGT!

I had 15 1 gal DK Roses planted 3 years ago. 1st of all I want to say dealing with Fast Growing Trees was a wonderful experience (long story). My puppy got hold of 2 of them before we could get them in the ground and I thought he had killed them. He did stunt their growth because the other 13 are doing fabulous. My husband hates mowing around anything, I put these were he wouldn't have to, and other than the 1st day we planted them I have never even watered them. That says a lot because it gets extremely hot here in S. IN. My husband is so impressed that he wants me to plant more in a another area that he doesn't want to have to weed wack. Unfortunately I'm going to have to wait until next spring to do it, but if he is actually willing to do the planting that SCREAMS beauty and success. I can't wait! I'll keep you posted!!

The Double3 Knockout Rose is a great addition to my roses. It has produced a huge number of very bright red roses consistently.
January 1, 2013
I've been so excited for these to come in, waited 2 months. I still planted them and I hope they grow beautifully as everyone says but know one thing: these roses are NOT red! They're fushia/hot pink. The pictures all look red and the description says dark to light ""red."" They're pink if I ever saw pink. I'm disappointed because I specifically looked for red and could have gotten them elsewhere had I known

Theyre awesome! I planted 8 of the 1 gallon knockout bushes in a 24 foot section of my backyard fence line. I now have superb color in a place that was one quite boring. They grow fast!! I have had many compliments. The color is fantastic.

I purchased and planted these roses in September last year. They not only made it through one of the harshest NM winters we have had in a long time, they out bloomed our other pink knoockout roses that were a year older and more established
January 1, 2013
So far, so good.
Planted them about 3 feet apart, down a 30 inch wide planter, between my driveway and the walkway from the street to my front porch. I put in a drip line down the whole length of the planter, with drip feeds to each plant. It waters once a week. However, my lawn sprinklers tend to wet the planter soil. I treated the soil with compost and sand (bentonite) before planting.

Planting & Care



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


Double Knock Out® Rose Planting Diretions

Knockout roses are easy to grow and do not require special care. They are one of the most disease resistant roses on the market today. They have stunning flower power with a generous bloom cycle (about every 5-6 weeks) that will continue until the first hard frost. All members in Knockout roses family are self-cleaning so there is no need to deadhead. Knockout roses are winter hardy to USDA Zone 5 and heat tolerant throughout the entire U.S. They thrive in almost every area of the country.

Seasonal information: Knockout roses 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.

Selecting a location: Choose a well-drained site in full to partial sun. If you choose partial sun, make sure your Knockout 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:
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) Space Knockout roses plants three feet apart.
6) Mulch the planting site to retain soil moisture and keep competing growth from coming up around the rose bush.

Watering: Keep Knockout roses moist at all times. Water around the roots rather than overhead (or showering).

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.

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 roses into growth and blooming by pruning it back a little in the spring after the last hard freeze. Keep the Knockout roses 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.

how many double knockout roses do i need to plant to make a 12 foot long hedge?
gatornon on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you want a solid hedge, you can plant them 3 feet apart, so that would take 4 plants. If you like to see the rounded top shape of each individual bush, plant them 4 feet apart, which would take 3 bushes. If you want a really dense, tight hedge, plant them 2 1/2 feet apart, which would require 5 plants.
I planted the Double Knock Out Rose 1 week ago and have noticed the leaves are turning brown and are shriveling up. Also the middle of the roses are turning brown. Is this to be expected? This is the first time I have planted a rose bush in my yard.
Joan R on Jun 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The knockout rose can stress a little after replanting, they should bounce back within a couple weeks. Make sure that you water well.

Hi. When's best to plant these? And what's the difference between the 1 year and 2 Year plants?
Penny E on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
The difference in the 1 year and the 2 year plant is the age, the 2 year is a little bigger and more mature.

Donna G on Feb 18, 2018

my knock roses have bugs. how often should i dust them?
ecane on Aug 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what kind of insects you have. Remember when you dust or spray you also kill off any beneficial insects that eat the bad ones.If you need to, I would recommend spraying at dusk.This will reduce the chance of killing bees which are so important for pollination.Some studies have shown that dusting can attract pollinators because they think it's pollen which may be one of the reasons we've had such a decline in honey bees. If I can be of further help please contact me and I will be happy to help. Thank you
