Easy-Care Red Pink Double Knock Out Roses

Why I pick the Double Knock Out Roses? It is the most disease resistant rose on the market, very easy to grow and do not require special care. It has stunning flower power with a generous bloom cycle (about every 5-6 weeks) that will continue until the first hard frost. All of the Knock Out Roses are self-cleaning so there is no need to deadhead. It's like plant it and enjoy it, no more hassle!

The roses name reminds me about that comedy "Knocked Up". Have you seen that movie? It's a funny one.

The Knock Out Roses are winter hardy to USDA Zone 5 and heat tolerant throughout the entire U.S. They thrive in almost every area of the country. In the coldest regions, they will need winter protection.

Habit: Compact, mounded and bushy.
Inflorescence: 1 to 5 flowers per cluster, up to 25 blooms per flowering branch.

Foliage: Deep mossy green with blue and maroon highlights and a maroon underside, distinct glaucous appearance.

Fall Foliage: Deep, lustrous purple with rich maroon undertones.
Disease Tolerance: The most disease resistant roses on the market. Black spot resistant and drought tolerant.

Flowering: Generous bloom cycle (about every 5-6 weeks) from spring until the first hard frost.

If unpruned, the Knock Out Roses can easily grow in a more, dense compact (3-4 feet) and upright fashion than Knockout’s 5-6 foot height and broad, spreading form. This sister to the Knockout rose puts a great deal into its value as a landscape rose, from its four season appeal to its natural resistance to black spot, as well as other diseases and insects. The season ending color of this rose is exceptional with its rich burgundy leaves in the fall and its bright orange-red hips to add color to the winter months. Plant them individually among shrubs, annuals and perennials in mixed beds and borders, or in large groups to create a colorful hedge. It also looks great along a foundation to provide a bright border.

  1. They are SO pretty. I wish I had a spot to grow some here. Happy Mother's Day to you.

  2. I love the knockout roses, but my favorite is 'Blushing' a pale, shell pink. I have two, but will probably put in more. I am also on the lookout for the newest one, 'Whiteout' but haven't seen it offered locally yet.
