New Growth on the Rose Bush

New Growth on the Rose Bush (Don Juan Roses)

We finally have some new growth on the rose bush, no roses right now. The new growth is red on the Don Juans and turns to darker green.

It looks very healthy.

This part of the plant is. It is my first attempt at growing roses. The Don Juans are supposed to be easy to grow, but I have had aphids, black mildewy stuff on the leaves and many times the new growth comes out all black, instead of healthy. So I'm really happy when they get nice healthy new growth. I just gave them some Rose Tone and some Epsom salt this weekend. So hopefully we will see some blooms soon.
