Blackspot in CA?

I'm new to minis, and I see many of you write that many (or most) of them must be sprayed for blackspot. I'm in coastal Southern California, have had full-sized roses for years and have never had blackspot, just lots of PM. Should I expect to see it on my new minis? What do you spray with?

Black Spot is really Anthracnose.

for more information.

The treatment for black spot is usually the same for anthracnose though.....
