A great addition to any garden,
These tiny bushes arrived in good health and were planted in full sun, in NC. This is the second year for two of them, and I needed to add just one more. In their first year the growth is slower but so many flowers it amazed me. You need to deadhead the spent flowers to encourage more blooms. They bloom from June to frost - Hardy and true.

I did not order these until late in the season. They have been full of buds and blooming like crazy. It is Oct 30th, and the bush is still full of blooms. I hate to see the frost come.

knockout rose and fig tree
They r both doing extremely well. I am convinced those roses will do well under any circumstances. They have survived beetles,aphids and drought. No I have sprayed them and fed them. They r so pretty. The fig tree is 2 ft. tall and had figs already. The squirrels ate them. Everything I have purchased from u has been exceptional.
Thanks, Beth

Fragrant and very pretty roses
This was the first time I saw a "yellow" knock out rose bush offered and was surprised it had a fragrance. I already had quite a few pink knock out buses and they are wonderfully carefree. Am looking forward to enjoying these too. They arrived promptly and some already had buds on them. All 6 bushes are growing well and have flowered. Very happy with my purchase.
July 24, 2015
Blooms within a month after planting
Plant arrived in great condition and planted in container. Within a month have blooms. The deep yellow does not last long and the flowers fade to almost white. They have been blooming for several weeks. Plant and blooms doing well.

Planting & Care

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

Sunny Knock Out® Rose 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.

We moved to a new house 100 miles away when we retired, and roses seem to do very well here so far. I have read good things about the Knock Out Rose and have no yellow roses yet. I needed to add something for free shipping when I got my fruit trees! I love Fast Growing Trees and so I prefer to buy from them.

This was for in memory for my SIS. my brother's wife of 30 years. Cut flowers die and I prefer plants myself. My brother doesn't do well with house plants, but is great with a garden. I wanted a living memory for him and the families. She had a sunny disposition and a smile that warmed everyone near her. From what I read on your page, this was going to easy for him to care for and be a nice memory of SIS; she'd totally would loved this. It says SUSIE - SIS - MOM - MY SOUL MATE.

what times of year are ok for planting knockout roses?
bill s on Oct 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can plant a potted rose pretty much any time of year, except when the ground is frozen or the temperatures are over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If you plant in warm weather, you will need to be sure to keep your plant evenly moist and not let it dry out, though its location should have good drainage to keep it from getting boggy. Of course, planting in early spring is best if you have a bareroot plant.
Can knockout roses be planted in containers?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Knockout Roses can be planted in containers and often grow very well in containers.
How often watering ?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Don't kill it with kindness. Water when it is dry, but not if it rains.
My red Knockouts bloom incessantly all year, but the blooms on my yellow roses only last a day before they start going backwards. Is this normal for a yellow Knockout rose?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes depending on where you live and how the soil is. this rose seems to like the sun more in the morning and not so much in the day.
I have a yellow knockout rose bush and the leaves are being devoured by a pest. How do I stop this?
Tom C on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: First, you need to figure out what is eating your rose's leaves. Without a picture or description, it is hard for us to give you definitive advice, however, you might very well have Japanese beetles, which absolutely love roses. To control them, take a bowl of soapy water out in the early morning and late evening, when they become sluggish, and simply knock the pesky beetles off the branches into the bowl; or you can dust your bush with Sevin. Your pests could also be caterpillars, Fuller Rose Beetles or a number of other insects, which would require other steps for control. If you can't figure out what is eating your bush, we recommend asking your County Extension Agent for help!
How much sun does this plant need?
randi m on Jul 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sunny Knockout Roses do well in 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.
Can I keep them pruned to 3 feet wide and no wider?
Richard r on May 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. I am not certain what size you are purchasing (1,2,or 3 gallon), it will take at least a season (spring thru last hurrah fall) to start really maturing, & you will hv the ability to control width, heigth, & shape. You won't really have to worry about sizing until mid 2nd season.
Does it grow well in Florida?
S. W. G on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no mine have not!!! they were suppose to be 4x4,,, they are half that size
Are they deer resistant?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No plant is 100% deer resistant. If a deer is hungry and food is sparse they'll eat anything. Sunny Knockout Roses aren't the first choice for deer, but if deer are prevalent in your area and have caused problems in the past I would recommend spraying your roses with a deer repellent spray.
Does this plant have thorns?
Kathy N on Jul 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes, it does, but not finer that regullar roses
How long will these plants bloom?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sunny Knockout Roses will bloom from Spring until fall. Obviously, after the first freeze, the roses will be gone until spring. I have them planted all along the side of my house in alternating red and yellow. They look wonderful.
Do they smell nice?
marie h on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: not really, which is why I had intentionally bought the yellow (versus the pink or red) but they were healthy plants when they arrived, are still beautiful, and have grown nicely. They should stop saying that they have a scent, however, because if they do, none of us can detect it. The other odd thing is that they bloom like mad, then quit for a couple of weeks, and then bloom again, where it seems to me the pink & red just keep blooming and blooming, I don't notice those "quit" for a few weeks and have no blooms.
When are you suppose to plant them?
Brenda L on Feb 26, 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.
Do they have thorns?
Lori H on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they do have thorns.
Are they susceptible to gophers eating roots?
John L on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thus far, I have not had any similar problem. However, years ago, we had a serious mole problem. When we lost shrubs in this same bed where the knockout roses are now planted, we were told that it wasn't so much the moles eating the roots, as it wastheir tunneling,depriving the roots of soil. The moles are currently not much of a problem. Keeping our fingers crossed.
winter care for double knockout roses in pots?
pamnangel on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
what do we put in the soil to not get boggy?

BEST ANSWER: Thanks very much, we are going to order the sunny knock out rose shrub, 4 of them!
how big do the sunny knock out roses get?
Berta I on Oct 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello Berta,
The Sunny Knock out Rose will grow as big as you want, usually around 3 to 4' round. once it has been growing for a few years. I trim my roses back in the spring down to about 1 1/2'. Use garden gloves.
You would be very happy with the shades of yellow this plant gives, trim off the old rose buds during the summer to fall mounths. Enjoy

It blooms constantly and I cut the spent blooms off. It starts blooming in May and went til November last year and even made it through the first few frosts, blooming continuously!
