I have had beautiful knockout roses around my house for the last 8 years or so. Last year one got real ugly. The canes turned red and the flowers dried up and had the appearance of what the call witches broom. Well, I removed that one last year. I have found out recently that I may have what is called as Rose Rosette disease. Has anybody that grows roses ever had this problem. It is hard to tell yet this early in the season but the others now appear to have it. May have to dig them all up. Wondering if I can replant new ones in same area. Some online have said I can while others have said no.

It is very contagious. You need to dig up all the roots and put them in the garbage can. If the area gets good ventilation, you could try again with the roses. You might try a different color, the red ones have a greater tendency for the disease. I ended up with a limelight hydrangea in the area where I had a problem.
