Rose Double Knock Out


Description: The Double Knock Out Rose is a deciduous shrub rose that produces abundant clusters of double-petaled flowers throughout the growing season. The flowers are typically bright red in color, although there are also varieties available in other colors such as pink and yellow. The blooms are fragrant and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. The foliage of the Double Knock Out Rose is dark green and glossy, providing an attractive backdrop for the colorful flowers. This variety is known for its disease resistance, particularly to common rose diseases such as black spot and powdery mildew.

Size: The Double Knock Out Rose typically grows to a height and spread of 3 to 4 feet (0.9 to 1.2 meters) at maturity. However, individual plants may vary in size depending on factors such as growing conditions, pruning practices, and the specific cultivar. The plant has a compact, bushy growth habit with upright stems and a dense canopy of foliage. It is well-suited for use as a specimen plant, hedge, or mass planting in garden beds or borders.

Best Growing Zones: The Double Knock Out Rose is recommended for growing in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 10. It is well-adapted to a wide range of climates and growing conditions, from hot and humid summers to cold and snowy winters. This variety thrives in full sun exposure, receiving at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day. It can tolerate a variety of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, as long as they are well-drained and have good fertility.

Soil and Sun Requirements: The Double Knock Out Rose prefers well-drained soil with good fertility and adequate moisture retention. It thrives in full sun exposure, which is essential for promoting vigorous growth and abundant flowering. Adequate sunlight also helps reduce the risk of fungal diseases by promoting air circulation and drying out foliage. The Double Knock Out Rose is relatively tolerant of drought once established but benefits from regular watering during dry periods, especially in the summer months.

Maintenance: The Double Knock Out Rose is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal care to thrive. Prune as needed to remove dead, diseased, or overgrown branches and to maintain the desired shape and size. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to promote continuous blooming throughout the growing season. Fertilize annually in spring with a balanced fertilizer to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth and flowering.
