It's very important to grow blackspot resistant roses in this climate.

Because the areas long growing season and hot weather is ideal for fungus diseases to develop.

I recommend spraying with a fungicide or Neem oil to prevent or eradicate it.

If you don't intend to spray, you should choose really tough shrub roses with thick leaves, such as Veterans Honor rose
