cold and wet weather here in Portland this spring cause my late blooming satsuki to develop some petal blight this year (about 30% of the flowers)

What should I use next year. Any recommended fungicide?

Yeah use fungicide. Not sure what active ingredients that work vs which species of fungi.

Removing the affected flowers of course also helps. As is protecting them from rain.

which brand of fungicide?

My books say to use benomyl but apparently it's been removed from the market.

I don't know. Brands are different. And so are banned and not banned funcigides. I am sure you can find rose petal blight funcigide.
