Rose Black Spot
The disease known as black spot has probably done more to discourage potential rose gardeners than any other factor. Left untreated, it can completely defoliate a rose bush by midsummer. Focus on prevention by beginning a treatment program early in the season.
This fungal disease is caused by the pathogen Marssonina rosae or its sexual stage which goes by the name of Diplocarpon rosae. It is a two cell spore that is not visible without the aid of a microscope. This disease is characterized by black irregular lesions appearing to be on the leaf surface, however occurring under the surface of the leaf. The lower leaves are almost always the first to be infected unless the cultivar is in close proximity to a structure such as the wall of a house or a trellis, in which case the upper leaves can show first infection. These spores over-winter in infected leaves, canes, or on rough surfaces. They do not over-winter in the soil. These spores have no means of self propulsion and are not dispersed by the wind. Splashing water, resulting from rainfall or sprinklers, generally provides a means of transportation for the spore, however it is thought that some spores can hitch a ride on the back of a sticky insect.
