Multiflora and RRD Watch
I am working on a new rose garden at a new home and am hoping that I can avoid rose rosette disease (RRD). I know it is in PA. I moved to this area from the Washington, D. C. area in February 2004.
This Spring, I will be on the lookout for multiflora roses growing in the wild and any infected with RRD. I am in SW Chester County.
I know the multiflora roses bloom in the late Spring. Can you tell me the month when they should be blooming in this part of PA? If you can be specific it will be very helpful. I have not seen multiflora in the wild before and I am hoping I don't.
