Rose leaves falling off

Leaves Falling Off A Rose Bush – Why A Rose Dropping Its Leaves

By Stan V. Griep
American Rose Society Consulting Master Rosarian – Rocky Mountain District

Leaves falling off of rose bushes can be caused by different things, some natural and some due to fungal attacks. But, when a rose is dropping its leaves, you can be sure there is something wrong with your roses that needs to be addressed. Let’s look at a few reasons why rose leaves might fall off.

Fungus Causing Leaves Falling Off a Rose Bush

An attack of black spot fungus can cause the leaves to fall off of our rose bushes. First, you will notice tiny black spots on some of the leaves, which look a lot like fly specks or fly poo, but they certainly are not. If left untreated, the black spot fungus will quickly spread over the foliage of the infected rose bush. The black spots will get bigger, leaves turn yellow with sometimes brownish edges and fall off.

The best thing to do is to spray our roses preventatively for fungal attacks. Once you notice an attack of any fungus, spraying is of utmost importance. Keep in mind, though, that once the black spots are there, they will remain even once the fungus is dead. The new foliage generated will be free from the black spot fungus if our spraying did its job and truly killed the fungus.

Heat Causes a Rose to Drop Its Leaves

In the midst of a string of intensely hot days, some rose bushes will become very stressed, even with our best attempt to keep them comfortable and well watered. These rose bushes will start dropping leaves for no apparent reason and cause quite a bit of alarm for the rose loving gardener. It is actually the rose

bush trying to create better cooling airflow for itself. By dropping some of its foliage, the rose bush increases the open area for air to circulate around its canes in an effort to cool down.

Sometimes all that foliage is just way more than the rose bush can possibly support and keep healthy under severe heat stress periods. So the rose bush starts dumping foliage in an effort to keep only that foliage which the root system can adequately support with moisture, plus just enough to provide what the roots need to keep the overall bush alive and as healthy as it can be.

To help stop some of this foliage loss, you can make some heat shades to help block a few hours of those most intense times of the sun’s heat upon the rose bushes. Once the day is winding down and the intense sunlight and heat are as well, you can rinse down the foliage of each rose bush at the same time, giving them a refreshing drink of water. This will help cool down the entire bush as well as helping keep the pores on the leaves open and performing as well as they can.

Lack of Water as a Reason for Rose Bushes Losing Leaves

Another reason for rose bushes dropping their leaves is the lack of water. If the rose bush does not have enough water to support all the foliage, it drops foliage in an effort to preserve itself. The leaves and root system work together to keep the overall rose bush healthy. If either one, the top or the bottom part of the rose bush, do not get what they need to perform at the best levels needed for the overall health and well being of the rose bush, changes must be made. In nature, many times, such changes are swift and easily noticed. If you are paying attention to your rose bushes or other plants for that matter, you will see the warning signs of such things as a lack of water.

Keeping the rose bushes, shrubs and other plants in the garden well watered during times of intense heat may be a huge chore but is truly of utmost importance to a healthy and beautiful garden or rose bed. Feeding them is important as well, but a serious lack of water will have disastrous effects in the conditions of intense heat. Keep your gardens and rose beds well watered, especially in those hot strings of days to allow them to be as beautiful as you truly want them to be.

It Can Be Normal for Leaves to Start Falling Off Roses

We notice on many rose bushes that the lower leaves seem to be turning yellow and falling off, causing serious concern. It is just the lower leaves, though, and no mid to upper level leaves seem to be affected. Many rose bushes will get so full of mid and upper bush foliage that it shades the lower foliage. Thus, the lower foliage is not really needed to maintain the rose bush any longer and the bush starts dumping it. In this way, those rose bushes concerned are focusing on the growth that is producing more of the good for the overall bushes health and well being.

Some rose bushes actually become what is called “leggy” due to this dropping of foliage. In order to hide those bare canes or “legs” of the rose bush, many folks will plant some low growing and low blooming plants to help beautify and cover that leggy look.

What’s Wrong With My Rose Bush?! Troubleshooting Common Problems

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” wrote William Shakespeare. True story, unless your rose bush has mildew, is being eaten by pests, or gets a virus (yup, it happens). Not to be a total downer, but the most beautiful heirloom varieties are also the most susceptible to issues. The best way to prevent problems is to spring for a variety that has been bred to resist disease if the first place. Too late for that? Read on to learn how to play rose doctor.

Common rose diseases

1. Powdery mildew

Powdery mildew usually appears in summer, when the days are hot and dry and the nights are cool and wet. It can appear on leaves, flowers or stems and usually attacks new growth first. It causes leaves to curl and twist with white powdery spots on the top and bottom of leaves.

Powdery mildew prevention and treatment

Avoid powdery mildew by watering your roses at the ground level in the morning, allowing them to dry completely by nightfall. Powdery mildew is also brought on by overcrowding. Make sure your roses have room to breathe by planting them with enough distance apart and pruning to better facilitate air flow.

Powdery mildew can be controlled with a fungicide spray, or for a more organic solution, try mixing milk with water in a ratio of 1 part milk to 9 parts water and spraying on the foliage. This won’t completely get rid of the mildew, but it will help halt its spread.

2. Black spot

Black spot is one of the most common diseases to afflict roses. As a waterborne disease, it will appear during humid weather and spread through irrigation. Black spot appears as circular black or brown spots on the tops of leaves. The disease first shows on lower branches and moves its way upward. Leaves that are infected with black spot will eventually turn yellow and fall off the plant. This fungus attacks plants that lack good air circulation or have been sitting in wet conditions, especially overnight.

Black spot prevention and treatment

Prevent black spot by choosing rose varieties that are resistant to it. It will also help to water roses in the early morning and at ground level to avoid leaves sitting with water on them.

Fungicide sprays can help stop the spread and heal rose bushes. Begin treatment as soon as you spot this disease. Pruning affected canes and removing fallen leaves will also help stop the spread of black spot.

3. Mosaic virus

Yellow mottling on rose leaves is the first sign of mosaic virus, followed by dropped leaves and dead plants. A mild infection of mosaic may not cause any lasting problems, but severe infections can destroy a rose bush.

Mosaic virus prevention and treatment

Choose disease-resistant roses from the start. Once mosaic sets in, it can’t be cured. Affected plants will need to be removed and destroyed. (Yes, this is serious!)

4. Rust

Rust shows itself in orange spots on the underside of leaves and canes. Leaves may fall off if the plant is severely afflicted.

Rust prevention and treatment

Prevent rust by selecting disease-resistant varieties and giving plants plenty of space to breathe. Fungicides can be used to stop the spread of rust.

Common rose pests

Wondering who’s been nibbling your roses? There are a number of annoying pests just waiting to chomp down on your blooms. Frequent rose inspection will help you catch bugs before they settle in for the long haul. Be sure to look under leaves and in the soil around the base of plants as well.

1. Aphids

Creative Commons/ Olivier Bacquet

Aphids are very tiny insects that come in a range of colors from green to black. They won’t be noticed at a glance, but looking closely you can identify the little flea-like insects coating your roses.

To get rid of aphids organically, just blast them with a strong stream of water from the hose a couple of times. They’ll eventually move on. You can also use insecticidal soaps or try to encourage their natural predators, ladybugs, to make a home in your garden.

3. Sawfly/rose slug

Rose slugs are the larvae of the adult sawfly and will attack rose leaves, leaving just the skeleton of the leaf behind. These bugs can usually be found on the underside of the leaves and can make quick work of destroying your prized plants. They look just like green caterpillars and can be hand-picked off leaves or treated with insecticidal soap.

4. Leaf cutter bee

The leaf cutter bee gets its name from the circular holes it leaves in your bush. These bees use the foliage to build their nests. Leaf cutters don’t do much harm to rose bushes and are in fact good bugs that your garden needs for pollination. Leave them be, there’s nothing you can do and the damage is purely cosmetic. That’s a relief!

5. Spider mites

If your rose leaves are turning yellow with tiny white dots, you may just have a spider mite infestation. These teeny insects are almost invisible to the naked eye, but can do a lot of damage. Spider mites usually live on the underside of leaves and occasionally leave webbing on the stems. They can be controlled with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

6. Japanese beetles

The bane of the gardener’s existence, Japanese beetles, can cause extensive damage in a short amount of time. These insects are unmistakable with their metallic green and black bodies and come in hordes to overtake your garden. They can be driven out with the use of insecticide, hand picking and crushing, or using Japanese beetle traps far away from your roses

If you’re standing, shears in hand, shaking your head at a tangled mass of roses, you’ve come to the right place.

While they can be daunting at first, once you get the upper hand with proper pruning techniques, roses are sure to become one of your favorite flowers.

Let me tell you about mine.

Years ago, I moved and acquired an enormous Knock Out® shrub rose that a previous owner had planted.

This type is often used commercially, and I wasn’t thrilled at first, because it’s non-native and doesn’t attract local pollinators. It was a dense thicket of branches over five feet tall and equally wide, and being only a little over five feet myself, it was a force to be reckoned with.

I plunged in, literally, up to my ears in branches, with thorns pricking my sweater. Soon I had an airy, three-foot shrub with gracefully tapered branches that is virtually trouble-free, and blooms three times between spring and the first frost.

The first time I saw the sparrows sitting in it waiting for their turns in the birdbath, I knew this was a plant I could love.

What’s Your Style?

Do you have a garden rose that blooms prolifically throughout the summer? A potted miniature on your kitchen windowsill that blooms each spring?

Even if you don’t know the names of your plants, once you get acquainted with their growth habits, you’ll understand how to take care of them.

The best time to see the “bones” of your plants is when they’re dormant in the winter. Alternatively, you may strip some leaves from their lowest branches to get an idea of what you’re dealing with.

Roses grow in one of the following ways:

  • Creeping groundcover
  • Garden bush
  • Horizontal rambler
  • Miniature
  • Shrub
  • Tree
  • Vertical climber

Tree roses are also called “rose standards.” They may be a bush type that has been cultivated to have one long stem with a bushy “treetop,” or a bush, climber, or rambler that has been grafted onto long-stemmed rootstock.

In addition to a characteristic growth pattern, each plant has one of three bloom styles:

  • Everblooming
  • Once-blooming
  • Repeat blooming

The everblooming kind produces blossoms throughout a growing season.

The once-blooming type bursts forth, usually in spring, and is finished for the year.

The repeat bloomer puts forth blossoms several times during a season, like my shrub rose (and if you’re a fan of the Knock Out®, both shrubs and trees are available from Nature Hills Nursery).

That’s the easy part. From here, it can get as complicated as you like, from straight species to modern hybrids, and a culture that includes classifications, societies of aficionados, and international competitions.

For our purposes, suffice it to say that roses require attention with shears at some point, regardless of their size, shape, class, or bloom pattern.

More Than a Pretty Face

We cut canes for two main reasons: aesthetics and good health.

A garden bush type, like a hybrid tea or floribunda, may be pruned deeply to produce fewer leaves and stems, and more flowers. A shrub rose may be reduced by one-fourth each year, to keep it manageable. And climbers and ramblers may be trimmed lightly to redirect wayward canes.

Did you know that plants that are well groomed are more likely to be healthy?

When we see a spotted leaf or damaged cane, we can remove it and slow down – or even halt – the spread of a fungal disease like black spot, or an infestation by a cane boring beetle.

With the goals of health and beauty for motivation, it’s time to get your supplies ready.

Gearing Up for the Task

The first thing I learned when I dove into my prickly shrub was not to wear a sweater!

I recommend the following gear for a safe and successful session among the thorns:

  • Brimmed cap
  • Protective eyewear
  • Tightly woven shirt or denim jacket
  • Gauntlet gloves
  • Long-handled loppers
  • Pruning shears
  • Pruning saw

I also like to bring a cardboard box, paper bag, or plastic bin with me for collecting clippings, since plastic snags and can be difficult to work with.

Now that you know about rose behavior and you’re safely suited up and prepared with the correct tools and supplies, here are 5 of our top tips to make you a pruning pro in no time.

The Essentials

There are probably as many growers of roses as there are opinions on how to care for them.

However, most would agree that the following tips are applicable across the rose spectrum.

1. Cut at a 45° angle in the Right Location

It’s advantageous to cut branches at a 45-degree angle under all circumstances, whether pruning, deadheading, or cutting for a bouquet.

When you choose a branch to cut, try to locate a bud eye facing outward from the plant’s center. This is easy to do with garden bushes and shrubs.

A bud eye, or latent bud, is a bump on a dormant branch that will sprout in spring. Cut about 1/4 inch above the eye, on a 45-degree angle that slants down toward the center of the plant.

If you’re pruning during the growing season, locate a mature leaflet of 5 to 7 leaves that faces out from the plant’s center. Make a clean cut at a 45-degree angle about 1/4 inch above the leaflet.

The rationale behind the angle and inward slant is that this encourages outward growth and keeps the middle of the plant open for air circulation. It also enables rainwater to run down behind a bud eye instead of over it, where it may remain and cause moisture buildup.

2. Keep the Center Airy

As I noted earlier, air circulation is important to prevent moisture buildup, which may make a plant susceptible to fungal disease or insect infestation.

The more air that reaches the center of a plant, the better. So, in addition to outward, angled cutting, you want to declutter the center of your plants as much as possible.

This means removing dead canes and twigs, as well as canes that grow inward, and those that cross others. Rubbing breaks the surface of a cane, providing prime breeding ground for disease and insects.

An open, airy plant holds firmly to the ground. It bends rather than breaking in gusty wind.

Remove all “suckers” that grow up like weeds from the rootstock. They sap the plant of its nutrients and clutter the center where the air needs to flow.

3. Deadhead to Extend Blooming

Deadheading is the process of removing finished blossoms while their petals still cling, and before they’ve begun to produce seed hips.

While a plant is blooming, it directs its energy toward its flowers. Even as those flowers die, they receive the bulk of a plant’s nutrients, in preparation for forming seeds.

Deadheading halts seed production and redirects the life force back into the stems and leaves. Cut stems on a 45-degree angle above an outward-facing bud eye or mature leaflet to promote the growth of sturdy stems and showy blossoms.

Some folks apply a thin coating of white craft glue to the cut tips of branches. This is a great way to ward off disease and insects that seek vulnerable tissue.

And if you really want to go the whole nine yards, sanitize your cutting tools in a solution of one part bleach to 10 parts water. Do this between plants, and after removing any diseased or infested material.

4. Manipulate the Blossoms

The flowering plant that has the fewest leaves and stems to nourish produces the largest blossoms.

If you have a garden type rose bush, you may prune it down to about 12 inches, leaving about four to six main canes all leaning out from the center. This generally produces a plant that is small in stature with a few large blossoms.

Conversely, this same plant may be pruned to two feet tall with seven to 12 canes, for a taller bush with more leaves, and numerous – but smaller – flowers.

We said that shrub roses may be deadheaded to encourage blooming. In addition, by cutting stems on a 45-degree outward-facing angle four to six inches below the faded flower, the plant will produce sturdy stems for new flower clusters.

If deadheading consists of simply pinching off spent blossoms at their base, new growth will be spindly, and flowers may hang their heads toward the ground.

5. Prune with Purpose!

Most gardeners say that the best time to do a major pruning is during the last phase of winter dormancy. But this is not a hard and fast rule.

In cold climates, since it’s hard to predict the last frost, the appearance of forsythia is often used as a herald for the task. This is the time to prune one-fourth to one-third of shrubs and garden bushes per the 45-degree angle technique, and follow the blossom manipulation instructions provided above in tips 1 and 4.

If you live where the weather is warm, you may prune as early as December. The idea is to do it when the plant is not actively producing new growth or blossoms.

Some people swear by fall pruning, and others discourage it. If you find it convenient to trim in autumn, wait until after the first frost, and hope it doesn’t warm up again. Frost-damaged shoots can lead to permanent cane damage.

Similarly, if your plants sprout in the spring and then you have a cold snap, you may have to trim per the instructions provided, to dispose of premature growth that has sprouted and withered.

I do a lot of summer cutting on my own, deadheading, thinning the center, and bringing bouquets of flowers indoors. Every March I take off about one-fourth of the height.

Creepers, climbers, and ramblers may be trimmed to maintain shape, remove dead or damaged material, or deadhead.

Be sure to find the origin of a cane for cutting at its base, rather than snipping off the ends, to maintain sturdy canes throughout. Snipping ends may produce spindly stems and flowers that bow their heads.

And when you must trim a portion of a cane, cut as described, 1/4 inch above the largest leaf grouping you can find.

Miniature roses that are not in bloom may be trimmed back by one-third or one-fourth each year, and may require periodic attention for shaping purposes.

Grafted tree types and rose standards, as we said, are made of bushes, climbers, or ramblers. They require routine shaping.

To recap, general maintenance for all types involves deadheading, discarding diseased and infested material, disposing of dead wood, and deep pruning to rejuvenate and/or manipulate the bloom.

A final note: you may find canes that are green and alive, but have no leaves, buds, or flowers. These may have been damaged by adverse weather conditions, are of no use to the plant. They should be removed.

Just a Little Off the Top

Whether they’re creeping along a garden border, climbing over a pergola, or flanking an entrance, roses invoke a cottage garden ambiance that’s irresistible.

And as lovely as they are, they’re tough – so don’t be afraid if you give a bad haircut your first time out.

I can’t tell you how many times I have cut the wrong branch. But, like hair, branches grow back with gusto and give you another chance to get it right.

Now you’re ready to raise your shears with confidence! Keep a garden journal and take some photos to document your efforts – and send them our way over on Facebook (please follow our page, if you aren’t already)!

As one of the most notable symbols of love and romance, it’s no surprise that the rose is also one of the most admired flowers. This fragrant bloom comes in a wide variety of colors, each with its own special significance. However, color isn’t the only important factor to consider when purchasing roses. Have you ever thought about how long they might last?

Whether you’re looking for a ravishing bouquet of Mother’s Day roses for your one and only, a few fresh blooms for the coffee table or an arrangement just because, you’ll want your flowers to stay fresh for as long as possible. Exactly how long is that? Read on to find out.

How long do cut roses last?

Roses should last up to one week and possibly longer after being cut. If you follow proper flower care tips including cutting the stems, using flower food and changing out the water every few days, you can increase the lifespan of your roses. Getting your roses into a vase and attending to them properly will allow you more time to enjoy your bouquet.

Taking care of your bouquet will not only ensure the longevity of your blooms but will also make sure your roses are looking their best. Although, not all roses are created equal and your flower care isn’t the only factor to influence the lifetime of a rose.

How long a rose might last will also depend on:

  • The type of rose
  • The length of time it went without water after being cut
  • The health of the plant from which it was cut

There are also a few surprising tactics that may help ensure your bouquet of roses lasts longer. Think bleach, soda and more! Check out our guide on how to make flowers last longer to get the most out of your roses.

How long do roses last without water?

As one of the hardier flowers, roses can last a few hours out of water. This timeframe may vary especially if your roses are affected by environmental conditions like heat or humidity. If you’re planning on putting your roses in a vase, you shouldn’t keep them without water for too long, or it can affect their bloom. On the other hand, if you’re taking a note from ABC’s The Bachelor and handing out a long-stemmed rose, just be sure to do so within a few hours.

How long do rose petals last?

Fresh rose petals will usually last up to three days after being plucked from the flower. You can also dry your flowers or petals after you have used them and save them for as long as you’d like. As a popular decoration for weddings and some of life’s best celebrations, flower petals are often dried and saved as a memory or keepsake. Dried rose petals can also be used as an ingredient in fun DIY’s like bath bombs and even potpourri. Use our guide on how to dry flowers for more information on how to save your own.

The sad truth is that your fresh roses aren’t going to last forever. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to enjoy them for as long as you can! Get yourself a fresh bouquet of roses just because. Or give them as a gift; fragrant florals are always a welcome surprise!

Rose stems weak and shedding all leaves

Hello, I purchased an iceberg shrub rose in September, and at first (even in its 4″ pot) it was blooming and very healthy. However, now in November I’m noticing that even the fresh green foliage is falling off. Basically, with any slight touch, a chunk of leaves and stem will fall off at the nearest joint. Also, the outer tips of the stems are blackening and shriveling up as if burned. Just a few leaves turn yellow, most others are drying up at the tips and curling until they fall off. I just saw that the main stems, near the roots, are starting to get brown streaks through them that looks almost like wood – is this a process of the rose aging and hardening, or is it a disease? So far I’ve tried repotting it into a 7″ pot, being sure that the soil is dry before I water it, adding Miracle Grow for roses, and trimming off the blackened stems. I also douse it with Bonide Rose Rx once a week (I noticed honeydew/aphids in October, and thought there was maybe some powdery mildew, but seeing none since treating it). I’ve thought that maybe the plant in the bigger pot is getting overwatered, or maybe I’ve overfertilized it. But nothing online is explaining why the new green growth is so weak. Important other details: I live in a NYC apartment, so the rose is an indoor plant. Of course, I know that they are meant to live outdoors, but I have kept some very challenging plants alive in that window space (I have no other option in such a big city). The rose sits on our bathroom window sill, which gets about 6 hours of intense sunlight a day, and with the window cracked slightly, it gets some fresh air and breeze to keep it drier. New York is still about 40 degrees out at night now, at the coldest, so I wouldn’t think it’s wintering yet. Also, the rose gets removed from the bathroom any time we shower, to avoid too much humidity. It gets watered through until water drains out the bottom every other day to every three days. I can send more pictures if needed. Help me save this rose, please! Thank you!
