Mustbnuts, what is "damask crud."? I love the blue of your blue grass!

I wish I knew exactly what damask crud was. It turned the top part of my leaves black with uneven edges but the underside of the leaf was still green. No yellowing or falling off of the leaves like black spot. Didn't seem to hurt the plant at all. Still grew just fine but with interesting black leaves like a modern art picture. Yolande was the only old rose (and only rose) to get this last year. She had it, if I recall, during the summer even though she gets no over head watering (she is on drip buried under several inches of mulch). She was not sprayed with anything. Our humidity levels during summer are usually between 3--15% so there is no humidity to speak of that would cause this. I don't think I have any pictures from last year of it.

What she has now looks like black spot (nice little round spots of black). Nothing like what she had last year. Of course, I just looked at my pictures of her during the spring/summer/fall of last year to see if I have a picture of it, and I find nothing but beautiful green leaves! Agh!

Happy Easter to all! Love getting to see how your gardens are coming along. Here on Long Island everything is starting to leaf out. My little garden is weeded, mulched, pruned and fed. Lots of time on my hands these days lol.

I'm excited to see how it fills in this year, it's second year. I want to put in more tulip and lily bulbs but will wait until fall at this point. The peonies I planted last year are putting on more growth this time around so I'm crossing my fingers for flowers this summer! Hopefully they grow this year and I'll know what kind of space I'm working with. And I'm hoping for some good growth on my climbers too. I have one rose coming soon (I hope!). My uncle asked me to order him a couple HTs and I grabbed a Pope John Paul for myself, too.

Stay safe and healthy all! Group hug

I totally agree with you Seil! I was watching the snow come down in Banff and Canmore yesterday. So sorry! Here is what we had here. Even though the bunnies were not social distancing, they did have masks on!

Last year, my first blooms were destroyed by heat. This year, it is going to be rain. I am going to try to get out and take a video of my yard for my parents to see at their assisted living facility and snap some pictures of the flowers before the rain hits tomorrow. We are not expecting a lot of rain. Just enough for the buds to get botrytis and not open. Other than that, the rain is welcome before our heat kicks in. It was 82 F here yesterday.

OK, I have a question about roses in general and again it is related to my problem child (this year---so far). Yes, we are talking about "Marquesa Boccella."

OK, my first general rose question. Will all roses, if you can bend the canes, make blooming laterals, whether or not they are climbers? Or, will climbers only do that?

Has anyone else noticed that their Marquessa Boccella is a very big, lanky, floppy girl? On HMF, people commented that the Marquessa B that they bought from ARE stayed small, never got over 3 feet and bloomed continuously. Others have commented (elsewhere and the rose was not from ARE) that Marquessa B, grew very tall and only bloomed on the very tippy top of her canes.

The other day, when I was putzing in my garden, I had had it with Marquessa B. Her canes were now 8 feet long and very floppy and all over the place. I decided that since she was acting like a climber, to treat her as such. I tied her down on some plant supports (why am I thinking 50 Shades of Grey as I type this?). Immediately, where there was bare canes, laterals have sprung up and buds have appeared (her canes are extremely flexible). Her canes are now approaching 10 feet long and still growing! ACK! I think she is going to take over the world! No flowers yet (that are open--so I still don't know if I have the right rose that I ordered or not), but lots of buds on the laterals. Has this been anyone else's experience with Marquessa B?

My MB is obviously not from ARE and doesn't send out 10 ft long canes (I wish they did though)...so after your buds show their thing we'll get about whether your bush is a true MB. However with that description it is a keeper! Whistling
I can't understand why I'm so commited with your MB Confused Confused nodding nodding nodding

All roses should do this, but some may be easier to bend. Good luck.

Arturo, I don't know why you are so committed to my "MB" (IF that is her), either! If you were closer to me, I would dig her up and give her to you (of course, six feet apart). Truth be told, I am liking her better as a climber! She is not so obtrusive that way. No more bare canes with leaves only on the tippy top. Two of her buds are starting to open. At least I can see that she has pink flowers (like the majority of roses). Should be open in the next few days or so, depending on the rain we are supposed to get.

Any rose (any plant really) will produce laterals if it is horizontal. That is what espaliering is all about. Don't know anything about the Marquessa so I can't help you there.
