Behold - Blackspot Magnet?

kentucky_rose zone 6May 26, 2010

I got Behold last year mid July. It is the worse rose in my garden for BS. I do spray with Banner Max. Will it outgrow this tendency and be controlled with spraying or should I shovel prune it?

Not familiar with "shovel pruning." Does this mean you're digging it up or is shovel prunning actually a terminology used in flower gardening?

Roses adapting to BS I find this to be odd but possible. I guess it's hit and miss as seen in link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Behold
