Our rose is a Mirandy. We bought it from K-mart and potted it. It stays outside on our patio. We've only had it for a couple of months. It produced about ten or twelve blossoms and stopped blooming. Many of the leaves have half-moon shaped notches in them. We sprinkled the bush with cayenne pepper but the next day, the sprinklers came on and washed the pepper off the leaves into the soil. We haven't done this again yet, however. There are new leaves that haven't been chewed on. Do you think the cayenne worked? Should we do anything else?.
