Black Spot is a way of life here. I don't do anything for it and, yes, most of the Hybrid Teas are now virtually leafless, but they survive and grow new leaves and look good in spring and fall - and keep blooming even when they have no leaves, I don't know how. My only solution is to collect mainly old garden roses that have withstood the test of time. Sorry, no help, I know. My sympathies.

I pretty much gave up on roses that got it in NJ because most died of it. Not many HT's survived, but Olympiad, Midas Touch, Electron, and Memorial Day seemed to do fine. Most Austin roses worked except for the yellow tinged ones Cressida and Golden Celebration (Graham Thomas and Mary Webb did just fine.) I was surprised to find that minis such as Rainbow's End, Cupcake, and Winsome suffered from it - almost terminally. Gourmet Popcorn sailed through unscathed. Floribundas did okay, most of them. So did the roses in the Canadian Explorer series.

In my experience Black Spot doesn't kill roses, it just makes you wish they were dead.

Yes, Porkpal, that's my experience too. I look at the poor denuded things and wonder why I ever liked them. Then they get a new set of beautiful leaves and all is forgiven. At least it never damages the blooms. That's more than I can say for powdery mildew and all types of pests.

The bunnies seem to be going nuts everywhere. I just saw a mischievous bunny photo in the California cubit. I've never had a problem with them here (knock on wood).

I guess Buck roses really are meant for the cooler zones. They're among the worst in my garden as far as black spot is concerned. I always look at them and wonder how they ever got a reputation for disease resistance.

In my garden, it's the opposite.

I'm now starting to see a bit of black spot here and there.. some of my roses looks like they have rust rather than BS.. which, of course, is a load of BS. LOL! But, we just had a week of rain and there was a couple of days where the high was in the 50s, so that doesn't help anything. I may run around the yard tomorrow night and spray GreenLight on everyone.. but since I haven't deadheaded in about 3 weeks, I really don't see the need. My garden's gone to hell this year. :(
