Haven't sprayed all summer, and only fertilized once in June with Osmocote. In August, the rose still has nice foliage (dark green, glossy, large leaves) and is blooming in spurts when my hybid teas have stopped blooming. Nice bloom, shatters so not so great for cut flowers. Still, zero maintenance, no black spot all the humid summer here in Central Florida.
