This is one plant of Knockout growing in the back yard of fiend of mine who lives in Centerville, Ga.( The bush is 7 ft. high and 12 ft. long.

This first pic is the front of the bush.


This second pic shows the back of the bush with one cane that is at least 3 inches thick.--Ron

This picture is typical of the knockout bush's up here in NE GA. Several business' over in Clarksville (Habersham Co)have huge bush's like this. They use commercial hedge trimmers to keep everything in bounds. I have to admit these look great all spring, summer and fall.

wow, it is a size of an oak tree :) I cannot image how beautiful this is in full bloom. Wonderful and amazing! But isnt it a constant battle to keep it in bounds?

Brose--My friend planted this rose in 2000 and has not dead headed, Watered, or pruned or used any plant food on this plant since he planted it.--Ron
