Rose Rosette Disease on my new Angel Face?
A few weeks ago I purchased a potted Angel Face rose at.. of all places... Home Depot. I was so shocked to see it there. I've been looking for this rose for several years! It was planted in the garden about 12 days ago and has since begun to sprout.
But I'm worried.... does this rose show evidence of RRD?
Today I took some closeup shots to show the thorn development and the red leaves and stems. The first photo is a bit blurry but you can see green leaves near the back of the plant. However, most of the new growth is red.
I have about 15 other roses in the gardens. I've seen red on new growth before, but for all my other roses, the leaves quickly turned green.
Thanks so much for any and all advice,
