Snow Sunblaze Minis

jmeeks80April 28, 2007

I have two snow Sunblaze Minis. This year I've had a problem with black spot because my lawn sprinkler was hitting them. Treated with Immunox Disease + Insect. Was curious what type of maintenence these roses need. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to cut them back any. Last year they bloomed VERY vigerously with no care at all (just a tablespoon of MG Rose & Bloom every two months each). This year they are sickly and the buds die, although this may be resolved by keeping the sprinkler off them (was messing up my azaleas too). Also does anyone know where you can buy Sunblaze? I can't recall where these came from. I'll follow up with some pictures with the sun comes up.

Try some local garden centers. I don't see any vendors listed at and only a European vendor in the 2007 Combined Rose List.

You can cut out any dead canes and shape the plant as needed. The blackspot you are going to have to treat regularly, as per the directions on the bottle. Immunox application is every 7 days, and it may not clear an active infection. Immunox wasn't successful on blackspot for me. Many people are using Bayer Advanced Disease Control for Roses, Shrubs and Trees or Bayer Advanced All-In-One (combo fungicide, fertilizer and insecticide). They were probably getting too much water. I wouldn't fertilize until you see it growing new leaves.

The Immunox finally worked after about 4 applications. The roses have put on a new flush of nice looking leaves very quickly. Now the concern is the flower buds keep coming up green, not this due to excessive nitrogen?
