Standard Rose

I have a stgandard rose, Blue Moon, and it has like a moss growing up the main stem and spreading further up the plant. Does anyone know how to get rid of it or what it is



Could this be lichen? I don't think it will harm your rose.

I've been looking in my books and I think it could be rust so I'm going to spray it. We have trees in a playing area behind our house with the same thing on them so i think thats where it came from.

Thanks for the reply
