The Double Pink Knock Out Rose is a beautiful ornamental shrub or accent plant. Large pink roses lie on the green leaves, which attract the eye with ease due to their glossy appearance. Unlike the regular rose or even the original Knock Out Rose series, created by rose breeder William Radler, Double Knock Out Roses need even less management, meddling, and pruning. In exchange, they offer you more flowers, each with more petals. Rich textures and colors adorn your shrub, and the passer-by will invariably pause to enjoy the rose-tinted fragrances wafting from your yard. The trouble-free Double Knock Out Rose also has less problems with mildews and cankers, which is an issue with the regular pink rose.
You can anticipate moderately fast-growth from your Double Knock Out Rose. Growers list the expected height of the shrub as between 3 to 4 feet tall, though gardeners who never prune can expect a 7 foot tall shrub. Since the Double Knock Out Rose can gain between 2 and 3 feet of new growth a year, we here at The Tree Center suggest pruning back the Double Knock Out Rose to one foot in height each season. Though this may seem like a lot, it will encourage new, healthier growth.
The Double Pink Knock Out Rose is one of the most popular flowering plants, and there are many reasons why. First and foremost, the Double Knock Out series is amazingly resilient. Disease resistant, drought tolerant, and soil adaptable qualities abound in the Double Knock Out Rose series, making it the ideal fit for poor growing conditions.
Beauty is next up in the list of positive attributes of the Double Knock Out Rose. The rose has long been loved by gardeners, whose stunning beauty, captured in each flower, has inspired artists and scientists, writers and poets, engineers and mathematicians. The Double Knock Out Rose, though, improves upon the qualities that attract the eye to the rose. Whereas the regular rose has only 7 to 12 petals, the new, richer blooms of the Double Knock Out Rose can have as many as 24 petals. These doubled-up petals also appear more often, creating more flowers, which then can be cut to use in décor around the home.
Roses, which have long been lauded for their beauty, are frequently despised for the amount of effort required for so little reward. Even Shakespeare noted this in his sonnets. The Double Knock Out Rose series, however, seeks to dispel this problem. Low maintenance and once-a-year pruning are all that are needed in order to enjoy year after year of vivacious pink blooms. Simply prune back your rose in early spring and watch them blossom from late spring to fall.
The Double Pink Knock Out Rose shrub will reach between 3 and 4 feet tall, though it can reach as much as 7 feet if left unpruned. The rose shrub is equally as wide, making it a perfect fit for smaller spaces and along garden walls or fences.
Be careful! Cheap nurseries will often attempt to entice you with cost cutting measures. Bare-rooted or branch cut varieties will not be as successful.

Your garden will be lacking the very reasons for which you bought the Double Pink Knock Out Rose!

Next, you will need to plant your Double Pink Knock Out Rose. Find a location in the full sun, where the rose will grow best. Sunny shade can also work, but check to be sure your rose will receive between 4 and 6 hours of sunlight daily. After you’ve found the right location, dig a hole. The hole should be twice as wide as the rose’s root ball, and only just as deep. It is best if the root ball extends from the soil up to one inch. This will enable the rose to settle over time. Applying a 3-inch layer of mulch and fertilizer after planting can also be incorporated into your planting procedure.
Double Pink Knock Out Roses grow well in USDA Hardiness Zones 5 through 10. They prefer well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. To ensure the best growth, have your soil tested for pH and water absorbency.
Although the Double Pink Knock Out Rose is a better version of the regular rose with increased disease resistance and blooming from the original Knock Out series, it still requires mild pruning and maintenance, as do most flowering ornamentals. The benefit is that instead of pruning your rose multiple times throughout the year, the Double Knock Out Rose only requires one pruning in early spring. Cut back your rose tree to about 12 inches tall. Heavy fast-growth will mean your rose will be back up to its normal height in just a few short months!
