How Deep Does a Knock Out Rose Bush Grow?

Knock Out rose root depth varies due to soil density and plant age. Knock Out roses begin in an 8- to 10-inch-deep hole with a spread of at least 24 inches. As the bush grows, the anchor roots reach farther into the soil to establish support. Watering to a depth of 24 inches is often sufficient to reach the majority of roots.
