we moved to this home and it had two roses bushes that were already here and planted but when they started to grow and make buds, the buds are opening up and then as soon as they open they look like they have been blooming for awhile, they are black on the edges and are real ugly. it is a white rose bush. is there anything that i can do to help the buds look like a rose???? thanks LORI

The damage you are describing is cause by a very tiny little insect called a thrip. It lays its eggs in the buds and that is where the damage is done. Any insecticide will solve the problem.

You may have thrips or rose midges. Both these insects will damage your rose buds so that they die and dry up. Knock a bud onto a white piece of paper and if there are very tiny fly like insects then they will be thrips. Cut open a bud and if you see tiny white maggots inside then they will be rose midges. Both can be cured with an insecticidal spray.
