This is a follow up from an earlier post. I'm just a little slow getting the pictures posted.
Mossy rose galls on rugosa roses in MN
Wow, and I thought my recent episode was galling.
Here is a link that might be useful: Garden Musings blog on Rose Gall
I wish my galls were as cute as yours.LOL
Those pictures make me shudder! Ewww, ick!!
I haven't experienced that here YET. Does that mean the plant is a goner?
What makes it do that?
Never mind I read Professorroush's blog on it... I wonder if they do too LOL
They made me shudder too, Seil, so much, I had to allow DH to do the pruning. When he found out what they were, he wanted to get out the gasoline and light a match.
floridarose, I decided we'd prune it down and see what happens next year. I'm afraid they may have already hatched by the time we got them pruned. SO SICK! I guess if the plant is a goner so be it, but I have quite a few in the back and front yard. I guess I'll find out next year.
Jessicabe, If they are that smart, I'm VERY afraid. I probably shouldn't have read that because I've already had bad dreams about those things.
I know, its gross to know what it is and now I feel like there is things crawling all over me but this happens whenever I come close to any icky bug..
Yep, as soon as I spy the 1st tick of the season, I'm constantly feeling one crawl on me even in the middle of the night. The creepy thing is, I have found them on me in the middle of the night. Hopefully, being hyper-sensitive and sleepless will save me from limes disease.
