I recently planted some Knock Out Roses. The tag said it's not necessary to deadhead them, but they look bad with all the dead flowers. Is it safe to dead head or will it harm the plant?

You can safely deadhead your Knock Out roses. They are considered self-cleaning in that the dead petals will eventually fall off the plants but if you find the spent flowers unattractive you can simply cut them off and trim the plants just as you would any rose bush. Enjoy your new plants!
