i have planted this rose 3 Years ago it has always done well this past winter was a odd one and i had growth before it was time due to a odd winter going in to spring. Then the new great died. When it decided to grow back all the growth i came very low to the ground and the other canes started to die so i cut it back however i got a small small bloom. but instead of Being red like the flowers have always been its pink.

I also planted 4 new roses this year that are white and the one bloom i got on them is red im very confused. Is there some thing wrong

In both cases it sounds like your roses were grafted and the grafts died off. Now all you have left is the root stock and that's what is blooming.
