Gardeners' Notes:

Ne experience with this new type of "carefree" rose. Absolutely LOVED this rose when I planted 3 last year, 2 facing South, one facing East. Out-performed all expectations.
This Spring, all got bad infestation of aphids. Sprayed them, all aphids split. Then, one got a weird "Witches' Broom" and did my research only to find that there is a new, specific genetic disease that predisposes this type of rose and all floribundas to something called "Rosa Rugosa Disease." Spread by a non airborne mite (?never heard of such a thing.) No cure, must destroy (burn) any plants.
So sad. The one in the back is staying, I am keeping an eye on it. I will not buy any more "carefree" roses.
