Anyone know what's wrong with my knock out roses?! They were beautiful when I first bought them they were gorgeous!!
Not sure what you mean?
All I see are spent blooms which can be cut off
in order for the bush to look better if you wish...
You need to dead head the spent blooms off and wait for it to rebloom. All roses will bloom in flushes and usually the first flush of spring is the biggest and best. KO's are no different. Otherwise that bush looks exceedingly healthy!
Nothing is wrong. Cut off the old, dead, blooms. The blooms on Knock Out don't last very long. More blooms will come. Water.
You mentioned in a different thread that the blooms were "peach". I'm assuming that what you have is Rainbow Knock Out (maybe). Please let us know if that is correct. If so, I find that the blooms of Rainbow Knock Out get very ugly as they age. The care is the same, but the colors of Rainbow Knock Out and the original Knock Out are vary different.
