total defoliation and new growth
I've been faithfully picking off all yellowing leaves and those that get spotty. I've noticed that on some of my roses this pretty much completely defoliates them. With a couple of deep waterings they rebound and refoliate.
Is that pretty common with modern roses?
My gallicas looked so horrible with PM and rust that I just whacked them back and watered well. Now they have healthy green PM growth. Perhaps I am just too warm and humid for gallicas?
