J&p Merlot or the Fairest one - bs resistance?

vettin(z6b Northern VA)April 21, 2012

Does this have any chance in bs prone Northern Va. Wondering if anyone grows it no spray in this humidity and how it fairs. Will tolerate black leaves and some leaf loss, but is the black spot bad enough to kill the plant?

Thank you.

I know there are some people on here who have this rose so I can't imagine why you haven't gotten any responses?

I don't have it, although I have looked at it several times. It's that red and white reverse that I love. I just didn't pick it up and now I don't know if it's available anywhere anymore. I hope someone will respond for you.

Hi Vettin! I grow 'Fairest One' and love it! The reason I have not answered your question is because even in my no spray garden black spot is never an issue as it is too arid for black spot to live here. Best of luck on finding the answer to your question! :-D

Hi, I have this rose planted next to double-delight. Double delight got some black spot each year. But this rose has much less black spot.
