Q.Roses.. Several Plants, Something Weird Happening

Zone 94546 | NBCarbone added on February 28, 2020 | Answered

About 3 or so years ago we noticed something weird happening to our rose bushes, not only the roses but also the leaves. Don’t know what’s going on, almost looks like some kind of Alien plants now. Attached is a photo of one of the roses I just took. Before when it happened it was only the center of the rose had those weird green leave things (?) growing and now it’s almost the whole rose. HELP???????!!!!!! LOL

I will take a few more photo's tomorrow.

I followed the link and yes some of the leaves do kind of look like what it showed. When this first happened a year or 2 ago, aside from the leaves on the bush, it was also only found in the center of the rose, not as you see in the photo above.

It IS really weird looking, almost like it's taken on an alien life form appearance LOL

It is impossible to tell with certainty from one picture but it may be rose rosette disease. Here is a link to information on this serious rose disease. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/rose-rosette-disease.htm
