Rose Bush Stems Have Turned White And Leaves Are Wilting

Question From: Esztergom, Komárom-Esztergom, Hungary
Q: My rose bush of 20 years, stems have all turned white and all the leaves are wilting, it hasn't been prunes this year or moved, what can I do to stop it thank you

A: Jennifer, take some cuttings of the infected stems and bag them in a clear plastic bag, seal it and take them to your local independent garden center or nursery that specializes in roses. They should be able to diagnose the problem. Best Nancy
