Hardy to zone 10, blooming for 3 seasons, and double flowered.

Plant Patent #18,507. Cultivar: 'RADtkopink'. As beautiful and high-performing as the original Double Knock Out® is, this pink-flowered addition to the family offers even better disease resistance, greater hardiness, and even larger, more fragrant blooms! A fine addition to any sunny setting, it takes its place as possibly the most carefree and impressive Modern Shrub Rose yet!

Pink Double Knock Out® begins flowering in late spring, each 3- to 3 1/2-inch bloom boasting about 20 petals, a light sweet scent, and a pointed star shape, thanks to nicely recurved outer petals. Very profuse, the flowers continue all summer and even into fall. They are borne in clusters of up to 5 all along flowering stems on well-branched, compact shrubs. You could not find a longer, more profuse bloom season from any other rose. And as if this weren't enough, Pink Double Knock Out® self-cleans -- the spent flowers drop neatly to the ground, so you don't have to deadhead them!

But that is only one of Pink Double Knock Out's® merits. This vigorous little shrub offers unsurpassed resistance to blackspot, COMPLETE tolerance of downy mildew, and abundant, healthy foliage that looks good even in those rare out-of-bloom moments. Plant it right in the middle of the shrub border, use it as a hedge or foundation planting, or even put it in a container -- it is attractive enough to stand alone, yet doesn't mind a little crowding. Anything less like the traditional finicky hybrid tea rose is hard to imagine!

If you are a Knock Out® fan (and who isn't?), be sure to check out other members of this exciting family: Double and Rainbow. These are easily the best landscape roses, and they have our vote for the most carefree and high-performing rose series ever. And now with Pink Double, they go safely into zone 10!

Crown hardy to -20 degrees F, this 3- to 4-foot-high and -wide shrub withstands drought, heat, humidity and, in addition to blackspot and downy mildew, pests such as the Japanese beetle, leafhopper, and rose midge. It is a landscape treasure you must not miss! Zones 5-9.

I have really enjoyed the knock out roses. I live in northwest Florida. Since I have gotten it, it has never stopped blooming. We had moved and I replanted it and within weeks she just came alive and bloomed a full head, she's worth buying.
Wonderful Roses

The healthy rose plant canes are now hand groomed for the customers' garden presentation. The roses are then harvested at the perfect time in preparation for shipping and customer planting. All of these steps, from rose research, planting, budding, growing, harvesting and storing, are essential to ensure you receive a healthy, vigorous Jackson & Perkins rose plant, the WORLD’S FINEST ROSE.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
