Issues-
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. This David Austin rose reportedly has good disease resistance.
Common Applications-
Shrub or mixed border or rose garden. Excellent specimen. Also effective as a hedge.
