Why should I clean up fallen peony and rose leaves?

Rose and Peony Leaf Safety

At the end of the growing season and before cold weather sets in, you should pick up and dispose of fallen rose and peony leaves. These leaves can harbor disease and pests over the winter if they are allowed to remain on the ground. You should not place rose and peony leaves in your compost pile. Either burn the leaves or put them in plastic bags and dispose of them.
