The problem of powdery mildew is one which is usually only severe in coastal areas that have moderate temperatures, and it is shown in a white or gray powdery coating that appears on rose leaves, buds and canes, and typically the disease will start on the young leaves and causes them to curl up, eventually exposing the lower surfaces.
