A disease is threatening Florida's $20 million rose industry. The disease is rose rosette. It's appeared in three north Florida nurseries and a retail store.
Mathews Paret of the University of Florida is part of a national team of researchers working on a cure.
"The problem is that it takes some time for symptom expression", Paret said. "It takes sometimes about a year or two. It takes three or four years for the plants to completely die, and people could wrongly assume that this is due to some other problem."
