Hello everyone...

My mother has what I will refer to as an old school climbing rose. It has been in the family for a very long time as it was one originally owned by a great aunt of mine so I know it is 50 plus years old. Any way to the point and questions...

This year, the rose has a few branches that have clumps of leaves, then a bare stem and more clumps of leaves. This is occurring on several braches of the rose. I wish I had a good picture to show but maybe you can tell from the one below.

Is this something to worry over, should these branches be pruned off or is there something that it is missing in the soil that would cause this to occur.

Stan, can you get a close up picture?
Has anyone possibly sprayed herbicide in the area?
Did this rose get pruned in a different way this winter?

@CindiKS

Hi Cindi, it was pruned last spring. I ask already about treatments or spraying and such and she said no. I have ask for a clearer and close up of the bunched leaves on the branch. Unfortunately the rose is in NE GA....me, in NW FL.

Be back with what I hope are better pictures...

Thanks I tip my hat to you.

So sorry that this has infected your rose. I've been growing roses 4 40 years and had not seen this awful infestation in my garden until 3 years ago. Had to pull 6 rose bushes so far. I'm hoping that I won't see much more damage this year

I agree I was afraid that was what we were seeing in the first photo, but the others confirmed. If there are other roses nearby, a close watch should be kept on those as well.

Thanks again everyone...

I passed this sad news on to my mom with information on RRD... Such a shame. This Rose has been in the family a very long time. Crying
