          What is better than Knock Out® Roses? Knock Out® Rose Trees!

I promised I'd share everything in my PROJECT: PATIO , and plants are no exception. The stay-at-home order made for the perfect opportunity to explore an online garden center ––

Apprehensive? Yes.

Why? Because you don't get to physically see what you are going to receive until it shows up at your front door.

Convenient ?

Also, Yes.

Why? You don't have to leave the comfort of your home to purchase your plants! 

Why did I choose is a family owned nursery located in North Carolina and offers not only online trees and plants for purchase but the website is also a resource to each tree and plant they offer. From zoning, care to landscaping ideas. The site navigation is smooth as butter and, in my opinion, alleviates all concerns or questions you may have about the tree or plant you are considering. The  1 Year Warranty option and the Plant Safe Guarantee  are reassuring deciding factors for me.

Now let's talk about the Knock Out® Rose Tree 

Why Knock Out® Rose Trees?

If you follow me on IG , @styledonstate, you've most likely heard me talk about my love of Iceberg Rose Trees but Iceberg Rose Trees are not the easiest to locate because they are quite the popular tree, especially at the end months of spring. does carry them but because it was June when I was searching and they were sold out. Next year, I plan to order in early spring! 
  I noticed  Knock Out® Rose Trees on the site and had never heard of them before so it caught my attention when I saw that they are prime in my zone (5b). I'm sure you've heard of Knock Out® Roses, just like I had, but never in tree form. Think of the Knock Out® Rose bush with a slim tree trunk that looks like a branch! 
   Come to find out , The Knock Out® Rose Tree is super similar to the Iceberg Rose Tree. White ( almost identical) blooms, spring - fall bloomers, virtually no maintenance  and the list goes on. The only difference? The Knock Out® Rose Tree has a tad bit darker foliage and a more dense bush. 

Maintenance : Virtually none , thats why this one peaked my interest!  Once they are stationed in the ground or planter , whichever you choose, you watch them grow! Pruning isn't required but it does encourage for more vigorous blooms and plant strength.

                                                                                                        from screen to site , and thriving!  

                                                                                                                     Let's plant!

The planters are 20 x 20 so we decided to put 2 inches of rock to the bottom for drainage

Top Soil went in next, 3/4 way to the top

Lastly, we added a bag of Miracle-Gro Potting mix  

Both trees came with blooms already on them, which I thought was beyond incredible! They were moist and in good living health. 

I'd love to know if you've ordered plants of any kind online and your experience!  If you haven't and are curious, I definitely recommend checking out  I've already started my Spring 2021 shopping list on the site!

  1. Okay I’m convinced! I so wish I would have known about these this past spring. I couldn’t find anything I loved enough to plant in our pots on the front porch! These are GORGEOUS!

  2. These are beautiful and will have to consider these! What a great share. I have ordered some plants online - seed savers out of Decorah Iowa. I bought some butterfly - Old Glory is a orange bloom. I've had it for 10 years and really enjoy it every year! I keep meaning to go back to order other items. I'm hoping to get some garlic and onions to add to the garden. Thank you for sharing!
