Knockout Rose Flowers Curl And Die Within A Day

Question From: T. Martinez - Los Lunas, New Mexico, United States
Q: My knockout rose buds open and the same day the petals start curling up and die by the next day, what is wrong?

A: Look closely to see if your Rose leaves being eaten by the larvae of the saw fly. You may need a magnifying glass. Bonides's Captain Jack Dead Bug Brew (Spinosad) is a good takedown spray that will zap them. Read and follow the directions carefully. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
