RE: Disease resistance

Steve, you're not alone. Most of us have that crummy stuff, my worst right now being mildew. I don't spray so I just wait for better times, and sooner or later the roses seem to overcome most problems. Since I don't spray I "fix it" be getting rid of the worst offenders, but seeing diseased roses is always a bummer. They're supposed to be beautiful!

St. Patrick recovering from crud.

Just Joey coming back.

Chrysler imperial is also starting to get some new clean growth.

Yes does look very dry Steve. I did not see this thread originally but your fire fighter rose looks good.
Glad your other roses are recovering...

RE: Disease resistance

The roses are on a drip system and getting plenty of water. To emitters per bush.
The rest of it is a moonscape. I bought some mulch last year but it was too fine. I'll put some bark down in the next month.

RE: Disease resistance

My chrysler imperials also have mildew problem(and aphids)
