rose rosette on Flower Carpet

lainey_6b_va(z 6b VA)May 25, 2004

I have found one cane of Rose Rosette on a Flower Carpet Rose. I have pruned the cane and sealed it in a plasic bag. What should I do next? Am I going to lose all my roses?

If it's truly Rose Rosette, dig the whole rose up and burn it or seal it in plastic and dispose of it in the trash. Don't take chances, especially since you probably won't want to spray with Cygon. Be vigilant of any roses downwind of the infected one, and look upwind for the source and try to eliminate it if you can. Digging up multiflora isn't fun, but it'll help to keep your roses safer.

I have lost three English Roses to Rose Rosette Disease. There is no cure for it at this time. The advice given by HollySprings is right on. Just dig up the infected rose ASAP and dispose of it., it's very contagious. Make sure you get all the roots and be careful you remove the old soil and put new soil before planting a new rose in the same place. The disease is caused by a mite that thrives on multiflora roses and is spread by the wind...
