Any Rose People . . . Help!

Rose Experts!

OK, What's wrong here!!!
This Knockout Rose is blooming but the leaves look like the bush is dying. Is this a bug or a disease or WHAT!!!!!


  1. Looks like a fungus of some kind - or is there a dog that urinates there? Wow - it looks terrible!!!

  2. Shirley,

    It's hard to detect via a photograph. However, here is a link I found that lists all possibilities and remedies. Hope it helps!


  3. I think you'll find that it's powdery mildew. Sorry but I've long since got rid of all my roses as they were plagued with both that and blackspot. I can't remember for the life of me what the cure was - sorry :o(
    Just found this article for you

  4. Here a thing you can try: baking soda in water with a liitle bit of dish detergent. Spray it on the leaves. But I think you have to cut all the sick leaf before.
