Q.Rose Rosette Virus

Zone Zone 8 - Dallas Tx | dlchaires added on March 27, 2015 | Answered

I’m destroying the two rose bushes in my garden afflicted with the Rose Rosette virus. It appears the virus is making its way around the neighborhood. Unfortunately, I tilled the soil in the garden before I read up on the disease. Will this virus affect my non-rose plants? Is it safe to put other bushes/flowers in this season?

According to all the research reports on Rose rosette virus and disease it appears to be isolated to rosebushes, so you should be able to plant other shrubs and flowering plants in the area without having problems with the virus and disease. Hopefully you have another area on your property where you can still plant and enjoy some rosebushes though.
