There was an article in the DMN this morning about RRV. About 3years ago, my rose garden became infested, starting I think with a tea from antique rose emporium ( mme Krueger). This eventually died and infected several other roses. I happened to be in Tyler and asked at the Amer Rose society about this. They said no cure - called it "bad juju"! I have lost 4 roses ; a tea, climber, miniature, and hybrid. A floribunda has occasional outbreaks, but I keep it trimmed, and so far growing fine. Antique rose emporium said they hadnt had any problems, but lady I spoke with did not seem to know about RRV.
I plan to try the treatments in the paper this weekend, and will update later. Have been organic for 8 years, for what that might matter.

It's caused by a mite that can travel from rose to rose. Pull out the infected ones before you lose them all.
