Q. Moss Rose

I have some moss rose that I got at a plant sale but they are not well. All the “needles” fell off and they have a kind of white fur on them. No visible pests-I want to know if there is anything that I can do and if I should waste my time replanting.

They may not recover, but it sounds like they have a fungus. Treat them with a fungicide to get rid of it, but they may be too far gone if they have lost their leaves.

Q. Rose Moss

I planted rose moss last year (as I really love it) and was able to get it to come back this year on its own. However, as soon as one is ready to bloom something eats the flower. Can you tell me what might be eating it and what I can use to keep it away so I may enjoy my beautiful rose moss?

You do either one of these methods to pinch back the plants.
