This is the rose bush I am having difficulty with. One picture is of the bush in full bloom. The next is after black spot ravished it in one week. I have sprayed 4 or 5 times, but it keeps raining after each spray. I trimmed this batch up severely the other day and resprayed. It hasn't rained yet, so maybe the bush will have a chance to come back out. Watch this spot!
This is an unknown floribunda type bush. I rescued it from a tree shaded yard and it has gone nuts for me. I have two like it that bloom in beautiful bouquets. Somehow, a Peace rose was growing in with it. I would have divided them up if I had known. The Redbud tree was a surprise addition. But Merlin will provide beauty and shade, so it all stays.
