For those with less space, the Pink Knock-Out thrives in a container, and it adds a touch of glamour to a patio or porch. The Knock-Out is a great choice as a foundation planting. They can be used as an anchor point of your home or flank the side of your exterior doors.

The Pink Knock-Out rose is great as a hedge along your property. If you already have established hedges, these shrubs can fill in the gaps for extra color. For those who want to create a hedge, this rose needs to be placed two feet apart from other shrubs. You can also plant the bushes in a zigzagging pattern to fill up any wide, open spaces. These roses are an excellent way to make a visual impact in your landscape when added with other shrubs or perennial borders.

Planting & Care

These rose shrubs are extremely durable and can handle droughts, heat, and diseases when fully established. The pink roses thrive in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9, and they prefer to stay in the full sun for about six hours per day. With more sunlight, you can expect plenty of brilliant blooms from these bushes.

The Knock-Out rose varieties do require fertile soil and even moisture in their beds. The ground should be well-draining without standing puddles after a rainstorm.

While these roses are drought-tolerant, you need to monitor the water for these shrubs. They require a medium amount of moisture on a regular schedule in order to get the best results. For those growing the roses in a container, a layer of mulch can cover the roots and help keep in any moisture. Mulch is just as helpful in a planting bed as it is in a container.

After they have established, the roses can be pruned in the early spring. You should prune them down to six inches before they start to grow for the spring season. These roses have thorns, and gloves are a must when pruning them. Slow-release fertilizer should be used in the early spring and mid-summer.

These plants have resistance to typical rose issues, such as leaf rust, powdery mildew, or black spots. The Pink Knock-Out rose doesn’t require deadheading, but it can help them look a little cleaner. Since these roses are not grafted, they are more resilient in those cold winter zones. This variety will even thrive in hot and humid environments. The Pink Knock-Out will continue to grow in the spring and look as great as when you first planted it.
