Papa Meilland

Hi,..Just this year my papa Meilland Hybrid Tea, appears to have developed problems, buds are dying, and not opening almost like rotting on the bush, this rose has usually been a vibrant and strong flourisher,..i have noticed stunted growth, leaves have almost become small and crispy, it does not good...the only thing it has suffered in the past is powdery mildew but it has been sprayed for that, not to mention rust and black spot to no effect, it really appears to be struggling to grow, we don't suffer many bugs here, and the leaves don't appear to be attacked in that way at all....so im kinda at a paradox for what it may be, ...the rose next to it seems to be growing strongly, ..makes it more a mystery, does anyone have any ideas
Cheers !

I am not a rosarian but you surely have something going on with both the leaves and the flowers. IDK what to recommend. Maybe locate and contact your local Rosarian Society. You will get good, region specific info and recommendations. Hopefully you will get some input from rosarians on this forum. Wish I could help. Good luck.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown

This is a link that rainbow posted awhile ago to help identify common rose problems. Damage resembles those caused by thrips, mites or blossom midges. The leaves also look like they may have powdery mildew too.
