|I bought a bare root rose in February and planted it in my yard. The leaves have yellow splotches in them (in, not on). Is this the feared rose mosaic disease??

|The symptoms sound suspiciously like rose mosaic disease. Infected plants usually grow and flower as well as non-infected roses, and except for the odd coloring on the leaves, you may not even know it is diseased. Rose Mosaic Virus is not transmitted through insects but is primarily spread through propagation of plant parts
