The picture of the red double variety is growing in my front garden by the driveway. It has been there for about 4 years now.

It blooms continously all spring, summer and all the way into december in my Southern California garden.

'Knockout' Rose Care

The 'Knockout' rose bushes are very easy to care for. The pink double 'Knockouts' in the picture above has never been sprayed and never need deadheading.

The rose flowers are self-cleaning, so you never have dead blooms on the bush, which isn't very attractive.

In the spring after you have pruned them, sprinkle some time-released rose fertilizer around the plants and cover the rose food with a 2 inch layer of mulch.

Now lay your garden hose at the base and deep water the roses good.

'Knockouts' Growing In Container

Caring for Knockout roses in a container garden is also very easy.

You just have to water it every day, and fertilize every week.

Pruning 'Knockout' Rose

Pruning is done late winter or early spring. Simply take a hedge shearer and cut the bush off by about a third. Then take out the dead and spindly canes. That's it!

I also trim the knockouts after the first flower flush is over in early summer.

After the trim, I will give it a good dose of Miracle Grow For Roses fertilizers.

Doing this will speed up re-blooming, and the bush looks better.
