These are pictures of my rose bush, wondering if I should cut it out or not? The new growths seem to have a white, almost silky substance(very faint) on them and have many yellow spots and the new growths seem to stay red. I've looked online and can't figure out what to do? If you zoom in on these photos you can see what I'm talking about

Bugs are having a go at your plant, try preventative methods. The plant needs its leafs to grow, we want to try not to prune if we can, anytime and always. The plant looks okay other than its beat down by bugs.

As you live in an apartment, is this rose your responsibility? Usually, apartment complexes have gardeners.

It's a complex, but I live in more like a condo unit, with my own garden area out front and out back. There are 12 units like mine that have yard. They don't do anything at all to take care of the roses or lawn. I only have one neighbor I share a wall with and really take care of everything but the lawn. There are other units that are more like a traditional apartment.

That's a cool setup!

It will be hard to figure out how to treat your rose without knowing what's eating it. There's other damage too. Did someone run it down? Maybe aphids? Time to do some detective work.

The silky hairs look like animal fur. Are there dogs, cats nearby? The leaves in your first photo look like rose slugs have been feasting.

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but have a sneak peek at the roses your neighbors are growing. If they all look like they're being eaten, they will continue to be reservoirs of pests that will continuously move back to your plant, even if you can treat your problem child. If they look fine, and it's just your plant, you stand a chance.

Check with your HOA or apartment complex management to see what the responsibilities of the lawn crew are, and what you are expected to do, and expected not to do with your garden area. If their gardeners aren't keeping the plants healthy, residents need to complain.

Good luck and Welcome! ,

The yellow patterning on the leaves might be Rose Mosaic Virus.
