Re: Various pests / disease

The roses are close together and you have them in a corner against a solid wall. I don't know exactly what is wrong with your plants, but I think they need to have more space and better air circulation so you won't have so much problems with fungi. If the roses have a fungal infection, it is hard to treat. I would dig up the worst rose and check the roots. Sometimes tip dieback is caused by rotting roots.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
