Hi all,

I really liked Livin Easy BUT had to shovel prune because of bad blackspot in our no
spray garden!
LE got through our winters fine, grew fast, and LE bloomed well with 3+" bloom size...

LOCATION: CENTRAL PA....

It had blackspot in my garden as well. It died last year after a very, very cold winter in zone 6/5.

The final blow indeed came from a very cold winter too over here.

This is the third season in my garden, Zone 6b Switzerland and already showing signs of black spot - again!! I am going to make a habit of reading the member comments and not just the main page in future.

A very good intention! Sometimes ratings are a hint too.

So the statement in the description, that this rose is "very blackspot-resistent", can be referred to the garbage bin... or to the land of the fairy-tales.

I have to spray fungicide on all of my Hybrid Teas and Floribunda's here in hot humid florida. I can grow old Teas, Noisettes and some shrubs here without spraying, but I will continue to spray my HT's and FL's twice a month for unique and beautiful flowers .

It depends, In the cooler months I mix Daconil and Propaconizole together in one spray tank and apply it twice a month. In warmer weather I rotate with either Immunox or Theophanate Methyl, or Propaconizole mixed with Dithane. Rotation is key so blackspot doesn't develop resistance. My spray period is March through October. If we go through a hot and dry period, I usually quit spraying for that time since the warm and dry weather naturally reduces disease. I don't spray my OGRs or Shrub roses and they do fine. This program is for picky hybrid teas, like Peace, Brandy, Papa Meilland. I can grow Mr. Lincoln or floribundas like Valentine without spraying but I love yellos and orange long stemmed HTs as well

Why was this rose even released anywhere but California? Quite frankly, it's terrible.

Arrived in the mail today....geez the thorn count on this one is crazy. It's not the big chunky spaced out kind, it's the cover every free bit of cane in thorns type like Alexander. Being that's it's a reliable seed parent I know I'll only be throwing thornless pollen at it.

Most cultivars demonstrated the same resistance or susceptibility in both leaf and flower buds to the three strains of mildew. However, in one cultivar, ‘Fellowship’ also known as ‘Livin’ Easy’ it was observed that leaf buds were highly susceptible while flower buds were very rarely infested.

Is this a quote from some reference?
Susceptible to what?

It's not an uncommon trait.

Scarlet Moss and Canyon Road both do this, when heat stressed. Mildew will appear on the buds, and will disappear in the next flush if the weather changes enough.
