Though they have additional petals, Double Knock Out roses have a more limited spectrum of colors than that of the Single Knock Out varieties. Single Knock Out roses are available in red, pink, coral, white and yellow. Both types of roses are vigorous bloomers, putting on blooms until the first hard frost. They are hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture zones 5 to 10.

Knock Out and Double Knock Out roses are shrub roses that grow from 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. They are self-cleaning roses that do not require deadheading to bloom every 5 to 6 weeks. However, occasional deadheading can increase bloom production and the overall growth of the plant. The rose benefits from monthly fertilization, though it is not necessary. Removal of dead or diseased wood may be done at any time. Knock Out roses are resistant to most diseases.
