Rose Rosette – Joe Truskot
Rose rosette disease, also known as witches’-broom, is caused by a virus (Emaravirus sp.) that is spread by a very small, eriophyid mite. The disease is limited to plants in the genus Rosa but R. setigera, R. aricularis, R. arkansana, R. blanda, R. palustris, R. carolina and R. spinosissima are believed to be resistant. Its main host is the multiflora rose. Interest in rose rosette has been generated by the threat to garden roses and its possible use as a biocontrol for multiflora rose. Joe will be presenting this complex disease with a PowerPoint and has stated he will let the photos speak along with the new research instead of strict academics. Joe will have copies of his book Central Coast Rose Manual.
Meetings start at 7:30 pm
Dublin Library - 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin
