The black is from white flies waste. Buy some volick oil and mix according to directions and spray the bushes before they start putting out blooms. Be sure to spray underneath the leaves as best you can because that is where the flies hang out. I have around twelve-fourteen bushes and this is how I treat them.
Good Luck. Helen
