The Knockout rose is probably the most popular, and widely planted landscape rose today. Quickly repeating clusters of flowers, blanket the plant all summer.
When planted in groups, the Knockout bush rose, is simply stunning in the garden!
If you want a rose bush that rewards you with a constant display of roses, give these a try. They seem to flourish, even if you neglect them.
They are especially good for planting in massing in large beds.
Even without trimming Knockout roses,they will grow into a rounded bush at least 3-4 feet tall, by 3-4 feet wide, or bigger depending on your climate.
It makes a wonderful rounded bush, that grows about 3-4' tall and wide, depending on your planting zone.
The warmer your climate, the bigger these roses can get!

This knockout rose, was started from a cutting last fall.
My mother has a bush that is over 4 ft. tall (she lives in the south, and trims it constantly to keep it under control).
It blooms constantly for her, so it seems the knock out rose is very dependable from zone 5-zone 9. And the warmer your climate, the bigger they will get.
