Mark Windham, Professor and Distinguished Chair of Ornamental Pathology, University of Tennessee
The Rose Rosette Virus has been identified as a significant and credible threat to the future of the rose. Professor Mark Windham has been actively studying diseases of landscape and nursery crops for the past three decades, including his current research into the management of RRV, funded in part by the American Rose Society. In this timely lecture, Professor Windham discusses the results of this research, and how we can best manage this problem in our own gardens. A past President of the Holston Rose Society who has been growing roses for more than 25 years, he has authored some 200 publications, released six dogwood cultivars, and holds six patents.
