Help with rose list- disease resistance?

Hi friends! I have decided to double down on my efforts to avoid any spraying for blackspot in my rose garden.

I’ve also been bitten by the strong colors bug! I’ll be getting rid of Carding Mill because it stayed defoliated with no spray. Also shovel pruning Iceberg and Angel Face.

For those of you on the east coast or high humidity areas with blackspot pressure, how does Boscobel do? I was surprised to see a Rosegeek video on Youtube showing Boscobel with no blackspot in her Maryland no spray garden. It’s such a beautiful rose but I don’t want to waste money on it if it will do poorly.

The other roses I’m ordering from David Austin:

Roald Dahl

Princess Anne

Eustacia Vye


Possibly Bring Me Sunshine- I’d love to hear about disease resistance on this one but it might be too new.

Also picked up:

Sweet Madamoiselle

Alfred Sisley

Cathedral Bells

Munstead Wood from Grace Rose Farms- hopefully this one won’t be too unhealthy because the color is gorgeous!

Thank you to anyone who can share their experience with these! :)
