Hi all, My hubby brought in a piece off a friends rose bush that all the leaves are tightly curled up. They look healthy other than being curled. Dark green, no black spot and he did say that it's on the new growth from the center of a huge bush, not all the bush. I did uncurl some of the leaves and they looked good, no insect damage at all. They are curled up like a sheet of paper that has been folded many times. All I know about the bush is it's big and has yellow roses. It's already bloomed earlier in the year with no problems. The man that has this bush is like me, country with no idea about really growing roses other than giving them fertilize in the spring and he does spray for black spot when needed. My first impulse was round-up damage, but DH said he hasn't sprayed any. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mona

Thanks Mike, Looks like one of those, leave it alone, things unless it gets bad and then spray if necessary. This man really loves these roses, so he'll be glad to hear this. If it gets worse, I may be back.

Thanks again, Mona
