Electronic download only. Although rose rust is not a major rose pathogen in Texas, it can burden rose growers by diminishing flower quality. If left unchecked, it can completely defoliate and kill the plant. Most rose rust infections in Texas occur on roses grown in greenhouses. This publication covers what causes rose rust, how to recognize its symptoms, how the disease spreads, and the best control methods. By Madalyn Shires and Kevin Ong. (2 pages, 3 photos)
