This is Touch of Class. There is screen and mulch on this plant. I think the reason in all cases is black spot. The grass grows around the plant, causing less circulation. The plant gets black spot and the leaf falls off. You see the new growth but I am avoiding an issue I need to severely address....blocking these weeds.
Hard to see the canes for the grass
Mr. Lincoln. It was also heavily mulched but the grass is very aggressive. Can you believe this is rye grass that I planted last fall? Not to self...No more rye grass...or at least not as much...
Tangerine streams is recovering but the grass is inside the canes and the canes are very thorny.
Better view of Touch of class. Moral of the story...disease has caused the leaves to fall off.
Journal Notes..more for me than readers.
Back rose bed
Tropicana I bought from DG
Ketchup and Mustard
I don't know what this easy or remember but it's very pretty...could be Peace, New Year's Day or Montezuma
Corner of the Rose bed
The back porch be likes the regular water but time to guide the climbers.
Sundial mounting is complete
Pinata...how do I train it on a brick wall?
Gardenias are blooming
This very aggressive weed looks like it has pea pods?
Endless Summer Hydrangeas benefited from the pruning... Last year, I had a serious issue with black spot on them, they look real healthy right now. Will be more preventative this year.
Gosh, I love this rose.
