The Q&A Archives: Paint Removal from Roses

Question: Someone spray painted my fence and ended up spraying my newly planted climbing roses. How can I remove the paint from all of the leaves. If I leave the paint on them, will the roses die?

Answer: How sad! There's nothing you can do to remove the paint; if the leaves are totally coated they will fall off the plant. New leaves should appear. I would just leave the plant alone and let it fend for itself. It's amazing how resilient plants can be.

Good luck with your roses!
