[From A Year of Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, p. 111-3:] If it looks as though the tips of emerging branches have been burned, with a sort of shriveled appearance... [you have] rose midge... [another sign is a bloom] with a severely bent neck... There are no roses that appear to be immune to midge, with the exception of climbing roses. [Scanniello's] guess is that the midge doesn't like to travel very high. All the damage seems to be at eye level or lower. [Scanniello discusses treatments and prevention, please refer to text for more information.]
