Rose Pink Knock Out® Shrub
Blooms begin in late spring and continue all summer!
First Knock Out® took the Rose world by storm, and now there's ultra-floriferous Pink Knock Out® to wow us all over again! Just as disease-resistant as its award-winning red cousin, Pink Knock Out® delights with an extra-long season of bloom!
These blooms are just 2½ to 3½ inches wide, but arise in such big clusters among the handsome blue-green foliage that you'll spot them from across the garden! They begin in spring and continue throughout summer and right into fall, persisting up till hard frost in my garden last season. They even self-clean! Now that's a landscape Rose -- colorful for three seasons and easy to care for in all four!
Like the original Knock Out®, this dark pink has superb resistance to Blackspot, Japanese Beetles, mildew, and many other common Rose scourges. It's even drought-tolerant, though of course it blooms best when given adequate water. You won't believe the difference that fresh, healthy foliage makes to your Rose display!
Another masterpiece from Canadian breeder William Radler, Pink Knock Out® is sure to be a runaway success. You just can't go wrong with this magnificent shrub Rose!
Pink Knock Out® reaches 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Space the plants about 3 feet apart for good coverage. Zones 5-10.

Easy as 1-2-3
Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!
Here's all there is to it!
STEP 1 - When your roses arrive, open the box immediately and soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can't plant them right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Sprinkle roots with water every few days. (Please note: You can also grow roses in containers that are at least as big as a bucket.)
STEP 2 - Dig a hole about 18" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it's large enough to give the roots plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides. Build a mound in the center of the hole and set rose on top. For vigorous growth, abundant blooms and lush foliage, try adding J&P's Root Boost
STEP 3 - Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole. Tamp down lightly to remove air pockets and water well. Spread mulch around the plant to suppress weeds and retain moisture. Water 3-4 times a week until leaves begin to grow, weekly thereafter.

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.
