Roses Losing Leaves
Yellow and Brown Spots in Summer

(Fountain Hills, AZ)

YOUR ROSE QUESTION: I am a new rose grower in Fountain Hills, AZ.

I have planted some Lady Banks and Knockout Roses by a trellis.

This summer they have lost a lot of leaves, have sunburns and look just terrible.

What should I do to bring them back? Ann D


Hello Ann,
Sorry to hear about your roses not doing well. It's hard to keep roses healthy during very hot weather.
I believe your roses are infected by black spot.

It's a nasty fungus. But it can be controlled. Just read my page by clicking on the link above and follow the instructions for getting rid of black spot.

You should also read my page about growing roses in Arizona.
Hope this helps you out.
