Strange Growth from Center of Flower?

11 years ago


I bought an Aloha rose, when I was first interested in adding roses to the garden and it was so lovely when we got it- pretty pink blooms. Anyways, we got it home and a little while later noticed it had several diseases (black spot, rust), and have since removed the bad leaves, etc. We've had it about a month now.

The problem is that the lovely pink blooms are starting as white now, or fading to white, and some don't even open- they sort of wither up and dry out before opening their blooms. I noticed this week a sort of strange green growth coming from the center of the flower. It almost looks like new leaves?


And idea of what this green growth is, and is there anything that can be done? Or is it the normal thing for certain types of roses?

Many thanks!
