Gardeners' Notes:

A fast growing rose down here in zone 8 (coastal south). I sprayed at first and kept the bs at bay. Then quit spraying and the leaves developed bs and fell off. But no problem as the rose sprouted leaves and blooms quickly. In my area, spraying is necessary. Next spring I'm starting an organic spray program.

This is a very brightly colored miniature rose. It blooms a lot and is suseptible to black spot in my zone 5, so don't water it after noon.
