The Dangers of Rose Rosette

Hi, let me introduce myself. My name is Kaylla Smith and I have been with CityScapes for 7-1/2 years. My primary job is lawn and landscape maintenance, weed control, fertilization and annual plantings. My personal favorite items to work with are pots and shade gardens.

This first blog is to inform you about Rose Rosette. This is sudden growth of thorny red stems on your roses and can only mean one thing, Certain Death. Rose Rosette is caused by a microscopic mite, and can’t be treated chemically. The best option is to dig up the rose, and place it in a trash bag immediately. If you find Rose Rosette in your garden you should also clean all of your tools before using them on other plants.
