Pruning a Knock Out Rose

Asked January 29, 2017, 7:31 AM EST

Is it too late to do a severe pruning of a Knock Out Rose? I have one that is almost 6 feet tall and failed to get it pruned before winter set in! Thank you, Barbara jackson

No, it is not too late. February and March are actually the best time.

Here is our pruning publication which you may find helpful: http://www.extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG84_Pruning%20o...
