A very common rose disease is powdery mildew when the leaves, buds, and stems of the rose are covered in a white powdery coat. It is a fungus that develops in warm humid weather but it can be reduced by means of proper sanitation - that implies removing all the dead or infected branches and keeping the rose aerated - and also by fungicide application. The fungicide should be applied each week or even more often if required, especially when new growth is affected or when there are frequent rains. You need to follow the instructions on the label and apply accordingly.
The nectary is also designed to attract insects or pollinators. The reason to call this part "nectary" is because it contains a sugary substance called nectar. Now sepal is located underneath the flower, just above the stalk. They are small leaves which cover and protect the evolving buds, till it grows into an adult flower.
Once you found the stems like that, cut just above a node (the place on the stem where leaves emerge) and cut at an angle. Place them immediately in water before you proceed to the next step. If you score up the bark on both sides of the cane (approximately for one inch) it will produce roots even easier. Place the planting medium in small containers - 4 inch container will be most suited - then, if you want to use root hormone, moist the end of the cutting in water and then stick it in the rooting hormone powder. Once you remove the excess with a little shake, make a hole in the soil with a pencil and place your cutting (if your cane has two nodes, place one under the soil, if it has three, you can place two nodes under the growth medium), gently firming the soil around the plant with finger pressure.
Those who regularly cut the hybrid tea blossoms, require little pruning. You should prune the plants in early spring. Make sure there are a few leaves on the stem after cutting the roses. Remove all the dead and diseased canes and the stronger canes should be pruned about 12 to 24 inches. You may find this rough on the plant, but it will encourage more growth and better blooms.
