Can you please identify the disease/pest on these plants and suggest a remedy. I think they are also infecting the healthy nearby ones.
The image size is too big therefore I have uploaded them to my drive.

Your pictures are not visible. Although I visited the link. How often do you water your plants?

Hello
Thanks for the reply. Yes it looks like scale insect and after a few google searches, I have come up with the best remedy for this problem with least use of chemicals.

Please tell me if this is going to help? I am going to try it right away on two of my rose plants. If it does help, I would like other members to also use this recipe.

Yes I did try the home made solution, it seemed to have some effect on the scale insect. I noted that the scales decreased in number in following days, but then my rose plant also died. May be the infestation had advanced too much. Thankfully my other plant the butterfly buckweed has survived the infestation and is flowering nicely, I love watching honeybees pollinating on its flowers while collecting nectar.
Is there any guide on bee nesting or does someone on this forum do it as hobby?
