white powder fungus

prismaticauroraMay 17, 2006

I'm in Florida and I have one store bought rose bush that thrives but it has white powerdy mildew on the lower main stems. How can I get rid of it and is it going to kill the plant?

Search from the main "Organic Rose Growing" page for "Powdery mildew". There are organic sprays that work well.
