Knock Out Roses are Easy
Allen, I love roses, but I've always had a hard time growing them. Can you please recommend a variety that won't drive me crazy? And by the way, I love the color pink.
Well, Tessa, you are in luck. The Knock Out® Family of Roses has 3 pink varieties that I recommend you try – The Pink Knock Out® Rose, The Pink Double Knock Out® Rose and The Blush Knock Out® Rose. All 3 have the same carefree characteristics.
Roses in the Knock Out® Family are cold tolerant to zone 5, heat tolerant throughout the U.S., reliably resistant to disease and produce a bevy of blooms every 5 to 6 weeks from spring until the first hard frost.
- The Knock Out® Family of Roses performs best when planted in full sun.
- The soil should be well drained and fertile.
- Plant the roses 4 feet apart to allow for room to grow and good air circulation.
- Feed every bloom cycle with a fertilizer blended specifically for roses.
