Knock Out Roses        

Knockout Rose - The Knockout rose is a good reason to love roses.  With proper selection and placement, there are few other plants that reliably deliver more vibrant color and overall garden satisfaction, than roses.  Roses can also be one of lowest maintenance plants in your garden.  Our Garden-Worthy™ Knockout roses are carefully selected for their cold hardiness, lower maintenance needs and disease resistance.

This year we’re adding the red Knockout rose and its blushing pink sport* the Blushing Knockout rose to the very exclusive list of Alan’s Picks.  This is a result of near universal accolades from our clients applauding the performance of Knockout rose.  That is a powerful testimonial given the fact that we’ve sold thousands of Knockout roses for many different situations during the past several years.  The Knockout rose is also designated as the 2004 ARS Members’ Choice by the American Rose Society.  This is exceptionally noteworthy because that group usually favors the more formal hybrid teas as opposed to shrub roses.

What first caught our attention about Knockout Rose was its outstanding blooming capabilities from a truly low maintenance, blackspot-resistant shrub rose.  It never stops performing -- blooming profusely throughout the growing season into late fall.  When planted early in the season, new plants produce impressive, repeat blooms the first year.  It matures as a well-behaved bush up to 4 ft. x 4 ft.  The dark purplish green leaves, as well as the blooms, are so tough they actually resist Japanese beetles. The foliage turns an attractive burgundy in autumn. Orange-red hips last into winter and are attractive to birds.

Knockout Rose - very low maintenance

Knockout rose maintenance is as close as you will get to a “plant it and forget it” -- we promise!  It truly is a very resistant to blackspot and other nuisance diseases.  Unlike most roses which require at least six hours of sun, both Knockout™ varieties do fine in a location with as little as four hours of sun.  A moist, well-drained soil is ideal.  Knockout rose thrives in humid climates where most other roses need spray and maintenance and is also very winter-hardy, even in windy areas, in zones 4-10.  The petals fall cleanly, never needing dead-heading – that’s right, NO DEADHEADING!

Knockout rose is now available in both red and blushing pink varieties.  Consider trying both colors in mixed groups of three each.

The Knock Out® rose will find a permanent home in your garden. This absolutely carefree landscape rose is a breakthrough in disease resistance. Fluorescent cherry red blossoms attract attention all summer and give way to deep purple fall foliage coloring your garden with three seasons of interest.

 Blushing Knockout Rose (Blushing pink)

  The wait is over for a pink version of the popular Knockout rose. Just like its parent, this shrub rose never stops performing -- blooming profusely throughout the growing season into late fall.

Sunny Knock Out Rose  (Yellow)
