john cabot with white leaves
I was unable to post a message in the general rose forum. Hope this forum can help. My cabot is three years old. This is it's 4th summer in my garden. it gets sun from morning until 2pm . Has no sign of pests other than grass hoppers.Last year it grew 10' x 6' and bloomed like crazy. This year it has hardly any new canes and almost no blooms It's been a very hot summer here with most days over 93 and quite a few over 100. About two weeks ago it started sending up an albino shoot, white stem with white leaves. Now other stems are starting to pale. I have fertilized and have spread ironlite -- no change. The ground is mulched with wood chips. Any ideas what i've done wrong?
