Planting Rose Knock Out

Anonymous added on February 27, 2017 | Answered

I would like to use rose knock outs for border plants. Can they produce flowers if I keep them short? What would you recommend for a low plant instead?

The Knockout roses and Home Run series of roses will flower nicely even when kept more of a short bush. I prune mine fairly aggressively and they do just fine. I especially like the bloom production I have gotten out of my Double Knockout and my Watercolors Home Run bushes. You can also look at some lower growing floribunda rosebushes that will work and they love to bloom, just check out the growth habit of the ones you like the looks of. If their growth habit states bushy and medium in height maximum you should be okay.
