After looking through the Rose forum, I came across a posting with this link;
This gave me the idea that I have rambling roses, a variety of climbing rose. The description is very similar to what I have.
My plant is very big and bushy (probably due to over growth and no pruning) with very long long canes (I have one right now that is scaring me because it is 5 feet over my head (I'm 6'4") and arcs over to one side, in total, it's probably about 30 feet in length, just one long cane, no laterals.) The entire bush is just long arching canes! I though it was a climber (Dr Huey) so I was trying to route the canes along my fence. The article states that the canes can grow as much as 20' in a single season. The article also stated that the blooms are in dense small clusters on long vigorous canes.
This is my bush, long canes with dense clusters of small pink flowers.
I have sprawling raspberries in front of this bush, which are probably cutting off all air flow, which is what led to the bush contracting black spot no doubt. It's losing leaves at a frighting rate due to this disease.
Now I just have to figure out what to do next!
Do I follow the pruning and grooming tips in this article and try to get it back in shape while cutting out the diseased canes or cut it all down and hope for the best, then start grooming and pruning as needed next spring to bring it back into shape?
