Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Roses benefit from the addition of compost, aged manure, or leafmold to the planting soil. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Water:Try to keep the soil evenly moist, especially in their first growing season. Never allow the foliage to remain wet into the evening; water early in the day. Spacing: 3 - 4 ft. Fertilizing: To keep the flowers coming, feed your roses with a fertilizer blended especially for roses. This can be done after each bloom cycle. Winterizing: Spread a layer of composted manure, compost, or shredded leaves over the base of the plant in late fall after the ground freezes. Covering these mounds and the lower parts of the bushes with evergreen boughs will add protection. Pull the mounding material away from the stem as new growth emerges in spring. Prune injured branches over when new buds emerge in spring. Maintenance & pruning: Prune to remove deadwood, to control or direct growth, and to promote flowering. Wait until growth breaks in early spring before pruning. Every 2 or 3 years, remove about one-third of the old branches to stimulate new, fresh growth. There is no need to remove faded flowers because these roses are self-cleaning.

I have been so happy with all my knockout roses from Great Garden
Plants. That is the reason I keep coming back.
Beautiful healthy roses
Already blooming and so pretty. I have them in containers now but will transplant into front yard when they get a little bigger
Came in package as healthy green plant. Has continued to grow well in ground through fall.
Very Satisfied with My Purchase
I purchased several items and everything arrived in good health. After planting everything in their new locations and adding some good soil instead of the clay dirt that is the norm where I live everything seems to be thriving. We have had a dry summer so far and with regular watering the various rose plants are on their second round of flowers with additional new growth in the works. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and will undoubtedly be ordering again to fill some other spaces I have in mind.
These were really healthy and took off pretty fast. No complaints. Can't wait until they are big and loaded with blooms!
