I'm really excited to be here with so many fellow plant lovers and look forward to getting to know you! Background History
: Two years ago, my roommate (who knows nothing about plants) carelessly planted a little yellow rose
bush under a big leafy busy in my front yard. For two years, the little rose
bush persevered. Despite being almost completely obscured by the huge bush, the young plant pushed itself out through the tangle of leaves in order to drink up the little sunlight that was available to it there, and survived. Last fall, I finally took compassion on it. I created a space for it in the garden out front, inserted good dirt, and planted it there. The plant at last seemed happy!Problem
: But one problem emerged this spring
. My plant began to develop brownish spots on its leaves. I do not like the look of these spots. They make me think of disease. I will do anything to save my plant so it can continue to produce beautiful yellow roses
, but know little about plant diseases. Can anyone give suggestions on what this might be and whether I can stop the disease before it gets worse? See the photos below...
Thanks for any help or suggestions you can give!
