Spots on rose leaves

Asked July 29, 2018, 12:29 AM EDT

I planted a rose about a month ago and just noticed lighter green rings on some of the lower leaves. Can you tell me what it is and how I should treat the plant? Thank you, Candy Smith

Thanks for your question, Candy. I believe your rose plant has a mosaic virus you can read about here: One of those interesting no cause, no harm, no cure issues. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
