Whats wrong with my rose bush?

Jcsherman(10 SoCal)April 27, 2014

Can anyone tell me what is happening to my rose bush. I already lost rose bush this year. It never came back from its January pruning. Then my St. Patrick lost almost all it leaves but it might be making a come back and now my Chrysler Imperial looks distorted. I had roses for 8 years and have never had problems like this. I had a little rust issue and have been spraying for that but this looks different. Thanks for any help.

Downy mildew?

Looks sunburnt to me. We had that heat wave right when everything had pushed out a lot of tender new foliage--the plants couldn't take it.

I think your plant will be okay there, but I'd rig up some temporary shade to get it through our next heat wave due Tues-Friday.

Is the spray too strong? Did you spray mid day in the sun?

I think it does look heat stressed. I'd take off the damaged parts and give it some kind of shade during the hottest part of the day. Even just a lawn chair over it to shade it will help.
