About this time of year, every summer, my rose's look their worst. They're exhausted from their spring flush and would prefer to nap lazily all summer. I do my part by not feeding or pruning them and giving them adequate water in the dry spells. However, in the summer, the grasshoppers are ruthless and prefer nothing else. I'd like to have their name officially changed to "rosehoppers."
Here is a picture of Old Blush this spring.
