All 6 of our Monrovia Carpet Roses are dying. Their leaves have some brown spots and are shriveling up with some holes in the them. There are brown and black spots on the stems. The tops of the stems are dying off and drooping down. There is also white foam on them. We have sprayed them 2 times this season with Fungicide 3 by Schultz. It has a Fungicide, Insectide and Miticide. It is not working. They are getting really bad looking and I am afraid we will loose them. They were planted 3 years ago this July. We had your brand at our other house and didn't have a problem with them. This is why we planted them at our new house. What should we do?

Unfortunately, based on your description I am not certain what is happening to your plants but it certainly doesn't sound good. It might be a fungal infection such as blackspot or a combination of problems. I would strongly suggest you work with your local county extension to diagnose the problem(s) specifically and based on knowing that, determine how to proceed. If a chemical control is needed, they will have the most up to date recommendations on what to use and how/when is best to use it. In the meantime, clean up any fallen leaves and put them in the trash, and avoid handling the plants when they are wet.
