Welcome, Genevre. That's some good information in your post. I hope you and Witchy have good luck with your Baronne Prevost. I once called it the most infuriating rose I've ever grown. It produced beautiful blooms, but it was vulnerable to every pest and disease here. I described my experience growing it in a plant comment (below the photos) in the database entry.

Hello Genevre, and welcome. I'm also new; I was at the Antique Rose forum at gardenweb for many years but the problems there discouraged me big time. Quite a few posters from that forum have moved here lately.

I gather from your zone that you're in a cooler, higher area of Arizona. Long ago I lived at Fort Huachuca for a year, about an hour from Tuscon.

zuzu I'm glad I planted Baronne far away. I'll ignore the leaves, besides the blackspot spray I give the offenders in the spring. If it can get black spot anywhere, it will get it here no doubt. I don't spray any kind of bug killer, but I do spray for black spot on the magnets. If they shake it off, I leave them alone. I've never seen rust in person, but the pictures make me glad I haven't.

Thanks for the welcome! At my current and previous gardens, Baronne Prevost has been a pretty healthy rose in its pot. I had NO blackspot at my previous garden, but it showed up very soon after I started gardening here. This spring I dug up and donated (sorry, plant sale purchasers!) my two most fungussy bushes, Double Delight and Bel'Aroma. The Baronne is now planted where Bel'Aroma was.... I don't expect to see blackspot for a few weeks more, but now I will be looking at her more closely. I've been too lazy to spray, but with Morden Sunrise in the garden and last year's comprehensive infestation in the borders, (but not in the pots), I know I should try to do something preventative.

what beautiful roses. I got some cuttings from an old graveyard. Here are a couple of pictures of them I had never seen purple in roses before. I have a lot of other roses if anyone would like to trade cuttings.

Welcome, JavaDad. Can you tell us more about your rose? Where it's growing, how long ago it was acquired, does it bloom repeatedly, thorns, fragrance, etc? A picture of the whole plant would help too.
