A Guide to Knock Out and Groundcover Roses

The newest trends in Roses.

Knock Out Roses are easy to care for and have a longer blooming season

Knock Out Roses are a family of easy to grow roses requiring no special care for success.  They have stunning flower power and an extended bloom time which continues up to frost.  They are hardy to Zone 5 and are self-cleaning – no deadheading needed.

Groundcover roses are great for covering banks, slopes or rocky areas

Flower Carpet Roses™ – The world’s #1 ground cover rose.  Once established, some varieties can produce an astonishing display of up to 2,000 flowers from spring to fall.  The latest generation of Flower Carpet Roses™ are extraordinarily low maintenance, self-cleaning, disease resistant and when roots are well developed, drought tolerant.
