Does anyone know what this is? I found it hiding behind a rose bush that I was trimming. TIA!

Does it seem to be connected to the rose? If so, investigate rose rosette disease.

Gee, I thought it was a unique plant ... never heard of Rose Rosette Disease but it does look like that may be the culprit; looks very similar to this image:

Thank you both. Sadly I think your diagnosis is accurate. Sounds like my new house will be needing some new landscaping as it looks like these plants have been sick for some time.

This is a very devastating disease to a rose grower! Either burn or dispose into a plastic bag, disinfect your gardening tools.
