My Cinco de Mayo rose is sick…it bloomed but the leave look ratchett, what do I need to bring this baby back to life?

    Looks like a leaf spot fungus.
    I doubt that you can save it…
    1) there’s too much other stuff there, and no air flow…
    2) after all that rain, there’s a lot of fungus on everything.
    3) I don’t think there’s enough light there for a rose.

    You could try cutting it to the ground and getting rid of the shrubs on both sides… Or just pick a new spot to move it to.

    Could also try a good fungicide, but make sure that it’s safe to use on that and won’t burn it.

    Maybe Bayer Advanced Garden Disease Control for Roses, Flowers, and Shrubs (the one that is JUST a fungicide, not a 3 in 1) could help.
