Double the Petals on Double the Roses
Why Double Knock Out® Roses?
Boasting one of the longest blooming periods available, from early summer to late fall, the Double Knock Out® Rose gives you all the amazing characteristics of the original Knock Out® Rose - just with more petals and even better disease resistance.
Even better? Not only is this cultivar more resistant to black spot, rust, and mildew, but it's also more resistant to insects. That means the Double Knock Out® is virtually maintenance-free, especially since it grows thickly without pruning. Plus, it thrives in containers or in the ground. This improved variety will even grow in the shade, giving you more areas to plant.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a well-drained site in full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). If you choose partial sun, make sure your plant receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day (afternoon shade is better than morning shade).
Start by digging a hole twice as wide and twice as deep as the root ball. Backfill 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 Knock Out Roses 3 feet apart. Mulch the planting site to retain soil moisture and keep competing growth from coming up around the rose bush.
2. Watering: Keep Knock Out Roses moist at all times. Water around the roots rather than overhead (or showering). Generally, this means watering about once or twice weekly, or more often in dry conditions.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize with an organic rose fertilizer once a month.
4. Pruning: Prune every spring, all the way back to 12 inches off the ground, after it is established. When you do prune, 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- rose bushes
Since there is still snow on the ground here in Pennsylvania, I am keeping my roses on life support in the basement . Hopefully they’ll survive until spring
I planted it outside already and it appear to be doing just fine..I hope I didn't make a mistake to have planted it so early since I'm in zone 8...
Received our two 3-year old double knockout rosebushes about 2 weeks ago. They were kind of sad looking at the time but showed some signs of life. In a few days, they started to look very healthy. We now have our first absolutely beautiful red rose bloom! We’re very pleased with our purchase! I tried to copy and paste a picture on this review but was unable to do so.
Ask me how does my garden grow...I'd say, there are none of the likes of bluebells, perhaps a few seashells, and plenty "Fast Growing Trees.com" to fill the land. When my roses arrived, they looked fantastic! Even a few of the bushes wore the last remants of summer's fragrant blooms. In the years to come, I look forward to the beauty of these rose bushes, to brighten my days with their soft scent and many smiling red faces. Thanks for the expert assistance RS - You are wonderful.
I’m a rose enthusiast and am hoping that this one will survive and be of lasting beauty. It is difficult to tell whether this is the outcome at this time, though I am wishing for the best.
