Please help me identify rose canker
I ordered a rose off ebay, Gypsy Carnival, because I could not find it anywhere. It was bare root, so thankfully planted it in a pot instead of in my rose garden. After a month of cutting back brown and black canes which over took all the new buds that would try to develop, I finally requested a new plant..
I have never dealt with Rose Canker but it seems to fit the category from the descriptions. Could someone please let me know if you think this is rose canker. I have destroyed the plant in the garbage, not in the recycle.. and emptied the planter where nothing is growing and will clorax the pot before using it again. This is an expensive stone pottery and I would hate to have to destroy it. Is this good enough. Thanks for the help
