Roses are susceptible to a large number of disease problems, the most
common of which are black spot, powdery mildew, rust and rose rosette.
If good cultural practices do not control disease, then fungicides may
become necessary. Insect problems include aphids, beetles, borers, scale,
thrips, leafhoppers and mites. If natural predators fail to control insect
populations adequately, then insecticides may become necessary.
Shrub or mixed border or rose garden. Nice small specimen. Also effective
as a hedge.
