My Experience with Rose Rosette Disease

By gemini_sage

I moved to my current home 8 years ago, and I brought almost every plant from my garden with me, including about 50 roses. It was an exciting time, as I had lived in a wooded, shady hollow, and I was happy to give so many sun-loving plants an appropriate home. I had chosen rose varieties for shade tolerance and disease resistance, because I knew the shade and moisture would be inviting for fungal diseases. Although we experienced a terrible drought that year, the roses did respond well to the sunny, open environment, and they settled in nicely in spite of the dry growing season.

Thank you for this very informative article. I did not know about this disease. My beautiful old fashioned lt. pink rose has it. I gather from this info it will most likely die. So sad I've had that runner a good 15 yrs. I tip my hat to you. Thank You!
