Thread OP

i planted this rose last autumn, ordered it from a verified seller together with a few others, which have grown beautifully... only this one has grown like this, it looks like a terrible thing, the leaves are all deformed - i read about a virus which can do this (witch's broom), but in all the pics I found the new ugly growth was reddish, not green like here. it doesn't look like the wasp issue either...

thanks in advice for your help.

Where are you located? Have you (or a neighbor) sprayed for anything lately near this area?

I too think it looks like herbicide damage.

Herbicide damage. The spray from any Round Up type product can travel a long way on even the slightest breeze. Also many lawn care weed and feed products contain herbicides.
