What is this fuzzy growth on a wild rose? It has several of these. If you look closely, you can see a tiny leaflet in the center of it.
P.S. The time on the camera was not set correctly, I was not out taking pics in the woods at 2am, lol!

"fuzzball" on wild rose?
Ky....put that on the regular plant id thread since you haven't gotten any response. Interesting growth.
KyWoods...there was a thread a few months back about that kind of growth on a tree in Fla. Ithought it was a type of lichen but it was ID'ed as a form of Tillandsia....which makes me think it might be a form of moss growing on your rose...kinda like Spanish Moss.
Wow, maybe it hitched a ride last time my parents went home to New Orleans, lol! Interesting, thanks!
It would seem that that is actually a gall...rose bedegaur...guess it wasn't a hitchhiker....GRIN
