What can be causing this?
A lot of my roses are growing in a deformed manner and I have no idea what could be causing this. At first I thought it was the summer heat but the roses in the front yard don't seem to have this problem. It is mostly happening to my Kordes roses (Lion's Fairy Tale, Elegant Fairy Tale, and Brother's Grimm) and also my Buck rose Polonaise and my Olympiad. But I see it on all my roses in the back, Mr Lincoln, Perfume Delight, Love, Gold Medal and Double Delight have all shown the same thing on occasion. Sometimes I see it also on my Belinda's Dream which makes me think its not the heat because she's pretty heat resistant.
Any clues? Is there a bug in the house? Or is this what they call balling?
