There is nothing I can do but cut my rose down and dig out as much of the roots as possible. I'm thankful that I have two healthy Peggy Martins in the back yard and I am praying that the privacy fence will keep the mites from affecting them also. We noticed that my rose was declining about a year ago. There were no signs at that time of the gnarly looking leaves that are characteristic of Rossetta Disease Below are the before and after pictures. This Rose was a landmark in the spring for my customers.
