Planting Pros Recommend:

When it comes to high-performing, reliable roses, the Knock Out® series takes the cake! The Red Double Knock Out® Rose (Rosa 'RADtko') is no different. This easy-to-maintain Rose bush ignites the yard with more blooms than you can count. And it's known for its repeat performance of wave after wave of bursting red blooms from late spring until the first frost!

The red flowering Double Knock Out® Rose Shrub is more exciting than any photos online can depict. When it blooms, it comes alive with more cherry-red than green. Its double blooms offer a luxurious display on a low-maintenance plant. You can pick them for a whole bridal party and the table centerpieces and still have plenty left to enjoy on the plant. The few times you’ll see these not in bloom, you’ll still enjoy the glossy green leaves!

Enjoy flowers until autumn, and once the frost hits, you can still enjoy the Knock Out® Rose's showy orange Rose hips while looking forward to its attractive violet-hued fall foliage! You can use the blooms in bouquets and if you've left any to turn into hips, enjoy colorful dried bouquets.

Planting and Application:

The Red Double Knock Out Rose stays compact, which makes it ideal for a wide variety of landscape uses such as foundation planting or informal hedge. It will also make your hellstrip light up with color and charm. It also makes a vibrant middle border or back border.

Add a single specimen to your cottage and perennial beds and borders, or accent your home's front steps, mailbox or near the driveway to welcome you home! Larger planters and year-round porch pots will add long-lasting blooms to your patio and even balconies! The butterflies will adore the blossoms and stop by for a visit.
