Yesterday there were wind gusts up to 40 mi. per hr., and I can see torn leaves on several of my rose trees and bushes where the wind ripped them. Tree roses Double Delight and Fragrant Cloud got it the worst, next Sedona, but most have no wind damage at all, like my DA's. Guess they are tougher. Maybe let us know how your roses fare with the winds.

BS was on all of my roses (30ish) last year, but none defoliated. Really interested to see how your test garden goes.
