Got what looks like Spanish moss sticking out from the trunks of my Roses. It started at the ground and over the last 2 years has slowly worked it's way up the trunk.
could it be lichens?
is it gray colored? do you have a photo?
plants with lichens on them are usually not robust--do a google for some pics and possible treatment
I looked this up after remembering a trip to Florida--it may be a native bromeliad related to Spanish moss--- tillandsia
try this website for a look
