About the Double Knock Out® Rose Plant

Enjoy twice the beauty! The Double Knock Out® Rose has an abundance of lightly fragrant, cherry red, medium-sized flowers that have twice as many petals as the original Knock Out® Rose. It has the classic rose shape and adds a striking accent to the landscape. Its leaves and stems are deep, purplish green.

The Double Knock Out® Rose, rosa ‘Radtko’, was developed by Will Radler in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and released to the public in the early 2000’s. It is the winner of an Australian Gold Medal in 2004 and was declared a Master Rose for 2019 from the American Rose Trials for Sustainability.

Like the Knock Out® Rose, the Double Knock Out® Rose, is prized for its abundant and continuous flowers, blooming in cycles from late spring through first frost. It is also beloved for being virtually maintenance-free and very hardy. It is self-cleaning, meaning that it does not need to be dead-headed, and it has excellent resistance to black spot and downy mildew leaf diseases.

This plant can stand alone as a stunning focal point or be planted in succession to form a gorgeous hedge.

Using Roses

Roses are edible flowers. In order to eat them safely, however, make sure that they are chemical free. Rose petals are lovely to add to tea, lemonade, or juices. They are delicious to use in butter and salads. Steep rose petals to make rose water or dry them for use in potpourris. They contain some vitamin C.

Roses are beautiful cut flowers. Because the Double Knock Out® Roses are continuously blooming, you can enjoy bringing lots of gorgeous flowers indoors for home decorating.

Growing Double Knock Out® Roses

These plants are hardy, heat resistant, and drought resistant once established. Unpruned they grow into bushes that are between 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. If pruning is desired, be sure to prune in early spring before budding occurs.
All of the Knock Out® Rose family of plants need full sun for 6 to 8 hours per day. These rose bushes should be planted 3 feet apart on center to allow for adequate air circulation.

Double Knock Out® Roses may be planted in containers. Be sure to keep them well watered with full sun, and to transplant them into pots that are twice the size of the container it was first in to give it plenty of room to grow.
