Margie, I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you, but I am sure someone will be along soon, that really knows their stuff. That's a pity about your roses losing all their leaves. Sad

Don't use soapy water. Spray the bushes with milk. Be sure to get the undersides as well as the tops. It does work but you may need to do it more than once. I generally pick off all the leaves affected with the spots and trash them. Don't put them in your compost. dooley

I meant to reply to this when you first posted it but I guess I spaced... A while ago, I rec'd an amazing amount of helpful info from our friends here about black spot on roses. Covers everything... Amazing!! Here are the two threads containing that info. Maybe will help you too.
