Hey everybody Group hug
I got Violet's Pride this year...and it has tons and tons of buds all summer....but none of them open very far. They get brownish and don't open. I talked to a friend here, and he says the same thing happened to his new Violet's Pride. What do all of you think of it?
Thank You!

I think it may be, Carol, due to all the rain this year that you have been having. Botrytis. I too notice this particulary on DA roses in early spring, if we have a lot of rain. Doesn't seem to happen to my non DA roses.

Mustbnuts - sure, that could be it. I'm thinking that a rainy summer may be in our forecast here, because of global warming. So, I may want to get rid of it... I'm going to give my new roses that have powdery mildew a few years to grow out of it...or they'll be gone too. we'll see. Thank You!

Jim - well, I fertilized inorganically for the first time this year....maybe that will make Violet's Pride behave. Thumbs up I'm hoping to get a really nice last flush (maybe 2!!!) with this new fertilizer. Come on, roses!!! Big Grin

My Molineux did that. Except none of buds opened. I bought it as a container plant. It had like 3 buds on and two opened flowers. I gave it a few days to acclimated to the outside. And then planted it. It exploded with new growth and buds. It had tons of them. Then it just started killing them off. It killed every single bud on. Then rebudded to double the amount. And flowered. I've never seen anything kill off all of its buds like that. The stem that attaches to the bud. All turned brown. And the buds fell off like cherries. It was weird. It does have RMV, idk of that's why. But I almost pulled it. But I'm glad I didnt. Bc its absolutely loaded with flowers now. And just beautiful.

I just pinched off one of my buds from Bridal Pink, opened but not all the way. Only on this rose do I detect a problem so far.
I try to grow everything, sometime not successful.

Seth - Sighing! Whistling You're making it hard to pull the plug on this rose. Smiling I'll give it another year. Because if these blooms ever decide to open...it would be fantastic!!!

GardenNut - yeah, only one of mine too. Are you going to give it some time to get better?

Just wanted to give you update on my molineux. Between it and my Winchester Cathedral. They are the best growing bushes in our garden. I'm glad I didnt pull my molineux. If you got the room to wait one more year. I would. Like I said it did the exact samething your VP did. And now its absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks for the update, Molineux is on my list. I'm not sure I will get one or a few since it's a small plant, 2-3 feet.

Seth - that's good to hear of another case with time healing all wounds. Smiling I'll keep it and see...after all it is a bloom machine....like Molineux is. Thank You!

That is encouraging about moulineaux doing better with time. 1st year in the ground and frankly I'm not impressed. it hasn't done anything but a few little small blooms that blow the 1st day but with time hopefully it will get better
I had been ready to get rid of rock and roll but gave it one more year and I'm glad I did
3rd year it's just been a great blooming machine and it's an awfully nice rose
very healthy ,so sometimes it does take a little extra time to see what the potential is.
You can't plant your new favorite rose if you are still watering your least favorite

Kristine - I've been thinking about getting rid of my Rock & Roll...but I can't...it's one of the few roses in my yard that has a fabulous (and large) bush!!! Few blooms though. But it's new. I'm glad to hear that you're now loving yours. I will keep mine!
