Diseased Honeysuckle

Zone Essex United Kingdom | sheila51 added on August 13, 2016 | Answered

From the attached photos, can anyone say what disease this plant has and what we should do to treat it? There are just a couple of flowers on it and it stands just below 5 ft tall. We have inherited this after moving to another house.

The photo is a bit fuzzy, but it could be black spot (Diplocarpon rosae), a disease that is most known for attacking roses but also attacks honeysuckle and several other plants. This article has more information:
