Can 'Moonstone' be grown no-spray?

In my pot ghetto I have a relatively new own-root 'Moonstone' rose (plant came from Heirloom Roses) growing in a 2 gallon container, which was showing a really bad powdery mildew infection basically all summer long including now.

I love the flowers of 'Moonstone', they are very good cut flowers, too, and I am short of that in my garden, therefore I really would like to keep it.

So I am wondering if there is a chance that it will improve on its own or if it is not worth the trouble to even plant it into the ground, because it will always be a mildewed ugly mess without spraying in my organic garden. If this is the case, I guess I have to get rid of it soon. Can you tell me your experience? Thanks!
