Until this year my New Dawn 4 year old rose has been glorious. Now has blooms with what looks like insect droppings and maybe black spot on a few leaves. Can you help?
Thank you

Could be caterpillar damage possibly by tobacco budworms or rose budworms

Or damage from the consarned pesky Southeastern lubber grasshopper...roses seem to be a dessert plant for them.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
