Robin's Pincushion
Growths like this, formally called Bedeguar Galls, are caused by the parasitic gall wasp Diplolepis rosae. This wasp lays eggs in the leaf buds, and a chemical distortion of the leaf buds produces a ball of sticky filaments. The larvae overwinter in the gall and emerge in spring.
