What has destroyed this Knock Out Rose?
Haven’t seen any Japanese beetles. What do I do with the 3 bushes now? Help

    I don’t know what happened to it, but I do believe if you clean up any mulch that is under it now and replace it with clean, new mulch in the spring it will leaf out and bloom good as new then. In the meantime I hope someone can tell you what to use to prevent this damage again. We have been happy with Bayer rose products.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I also hope someone can suggest something to treat the problem(whatever it is).
