So far, so good.
Purchased two red & two yellow. The red looked good and are doing well, even in brutal heat. The yellow looked tired and are having a difficult time getting established, but as I stated they are trying to get going in brutal heat. I water every three days. Any longer and they show signs of burning. We'll see. Hoping for the best. I would definitely reorder.

Doing good
When my plant arrived it had been in the heat over the weekend and was a little wilted. I planted and watered it good and it is doing fine. It has put out it's first bloom and I am very pleased with the purchase. I think as it grows and continues to bloom, I will be even more pleased with it.

Sweet little rose bush!
Sweet little rose bush! It’s still pretty tiny, and I’m still a little worried about it because of all the rains we’ve been having, but I see she is a tenacious little thing because I see buds. The smell is wonderful.

Though these roses came looking a little weak (for a fall planting) they leafed out and grew quickly the following spring. The one in the sunniest spot already has flowers (mid-may) and the others all have buds almost ready to bloom! Pretty light yellow color!

I ordered 9 knockout roses, pink, double pink, red & sunny white which was the only one that was small & not as healthy as the others. They were planted witin 3 days of receiving. Doing better now. I was disappointed in the sunny white compared to the other knockouts as to its size & health.

Hoping it gets better
I have 2 other knock out roses and they are practically trees now. This sunny rose is not doing that great. I really thought it was going to die for a bit but it's slowly starting to come around. I've only seen 1 rose on it so far. Not very impressed.

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. Planting & Care

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Does it grow well in Florida?
S. W. G on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, it's gorgeous!
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.
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.
Do theses roses had thorns?
sher p on Aug 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Sunny Knock Out Roses do have small thorns.
Are they susceptible to gophers eating roots?
John L on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Gophers will eat any roots. Here's what I have to do. At the time of planting cut the planting container leaving a couple of inches of the container at the top, and plant. The gophers will not dig to eat the roots.
Will these survive with all the rain that comes to the Oregon Central Coast?
Caren R on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They like to have moist soil, but not saturated.
what do we put in the soil to not get boggy?
Sharon C on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: fine mulch, or compost, and a little sand.
Do they smell nice?
marie h on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The sunny variety are the only variety in this family that have a light fragrance. It isn't as strong as other rose varieties but they do have a scent.
Should Sunny Knockout roses be pruned?
Meg R on Aug 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. I pruned mine (not to the ground, just to give it a shape) and its bigger and bushier than ever. I got mine last year. 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! It's a great plant.
does this plant have a symbolic meaning?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Yellow Rose has been associated with friendship. It's yellow, like the sun so it represents life giving warmth and optimism.
Can you grow in container on balcony ?
