The double knockout breed is a new form of rose variety that came from the knockout rose breed. Unlike its ancestors, the rose can produce a fuller, more beautiful type of flowers. It is also capable of producing blooms from the beginning of spring to the end of fall. These unique characteristics of the double knockout made it a favorite among landscapers and gardeners. Engineered to become highly pest and disease resistant, the rose requires very low maintenance. It is available in different colors with the most popular being red and pink.
Taking Care Of The Roses
Because the plant is very low maintenance, practically anyone can grow them. I am amazed on the resistance of this variety. Unlike other rose varieties I had before, the double knockout only needs minimal care. Because of this, I decided to replace most of my roses, especially those that die easily, with the double knockout variety. My daughter just loves them and she even took an interest on caring for our garden plants because of them. I water the roses regularly to keep the blooms abundant. But even without regular watering, it is still capable of producing flowers and is quite sturdy.
To keep more production of flowers, I put fertilizer once a month. Nevertheless, I never had a problem with pest and diseases. I also trim it regularly to keep its shape. I remove old, dead and less productive canes before the start of spring to make sure that the double knockout will produce new productive canes. You don’t even have to do deadheading with these plants because it is capable of self-cleaning. This means that the dead flowers fall off on their own.
There are a lot of colors available in the market. Red and pink double knockouts are the most popular. A new color variety was introduced recently. It is a shade of pinkish-lavander which goes well with flowering plants of blue, yellow, and white colors. Yellow is also another new color. I got these two colors and combined them along with flowering vines of blue and white. I placed them on the window deck of my daughter’s room because she loves them so much. It just brings her joy whenever she sees them outside her window.
