My rose bush looks as though it is dying. Branch dieback on roses is very common, and it is unusual to see a rose bed without at least a small amount of die-back. Suckers (shoots produced from the rootstock) will develop from below ground of the summer, but these are replaced by black ones in late summer/autumn. Black spot is the most important disease of roses and one of the most common leaves drop prematurely, usually beginning at the bottom of the plant and progressing upward. Lookalikes: Japanese beetle damage (late spring and summer) . water-conducting tissues and causing the death of upper branches or terminal.
