US (KS): Rose rosette disease confirmed in Ellis CountyA plant disease affecting popular varieties of rose bushes was identified in Ellis County late this fall, and Ellis County Extension is working to educate local gardeners about the illness and its symptoms.
Rose rosette disease is a virus-like illness affecting only rose bushes. Symptoms include unusually elongated stems, distorted and discolored leaves and excessive thorn production, said Holly Dickman, a horticulture agent with Ellis County Extension.
The plant disease had not been identified in Ellis County until October, when it was reported by a local Master Gardener and confirmed through Kansas State Universityís plant pathology department.
ďChances are itís been around; we just havenít had anyone inquire about it or ask about it,Ē said Dickman, noting itís of particular concern since rose bushes and shrubs are so common in this area.
A type of rose shrub known as the Knock Out family of roses is locally prevalent and is known to be affected by rosette, she said.
