What lessons have we learned?

Highly prized plants should be dispersed, not only within your garden, but with friends in other parts of the country.  This is true for major public rose collections and gardens as well.   

Look at all parts of your rose bushes - not just the blooms. Learn what new growth looks like on all the different roses you grow. This must be done before RRD gets to your area.  

Rose salvagers and traders need to look closely at what they bring into their gardens.  

Wild roses near you should be removed, if you have that luxury. Removal of wild roses upwind and near your roses is the best long term solution to RRD.
