What is wrong with my rose plant, it seems to be dying? Is there anything to be done?
Category: Planting Roses Questions and Answers
About three weeks ago my rose bush (it came with my home when I purchased it two years ago, so it is at least 3 years old; it is about 2 ft in diameter and 3 ft high) budded and bloomed beautifully. Almost immediately, the front half’s leaves turned yellow with brown spots, the blooms fell off, the leaves then fell, and the branches turned dark brown. The back half seemed unphased, but this week, it too started the same disintergration. No other plants around the rose seem impacted and I want to keep it that way. I water regularly and it gets great sun. This did not happen last year and nothing has changed regarding light or soil. I hope answers include remedies–that is I hope there is a remedy (the more natural the better) and that you kind folk inform me of what to do to save this great plant. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
