Thorny Rose – Rosette vs Glyphosate Damage

Q: Can you tell me what makes a rose sprout shoots like this? It’s an old rose, maybe 15 yrs. old.

A: The thorniness reminds me of rose rosette virus.

See the links here

but the balls of tiny leaves remind me of glyphosate damage.

See this

I don’t see any red foliage that would confirm rose rosette.

This is a situation where only time will tell.

Let me know next summer how to rose looks.
