Are you able to get some better shots that are closer? With the lighting hitting them the way it is it's hard to tell if the blooms are just done or if something else is going on.

Lakhes: Welcome. The leaves/foliage look fine, no sign of any visible disease. However, from your pics, it appears that there are a lot of "spent" blooms, which could be cut off. Then the question might arise, is this shrub once blooming only? You would know the history of its performance. Do you by chance know the name of the shrub?

I agree lots of spent blooms but looking close it seems there is something else going on.....but I am no expert better pics of the issue will help the experts in this forum help you...try getting some close ups of some of the issue areas especially any new growth or afflicted looking blooms...I do see some odd things but like I say I am no expert.

I don't know where you are located, but that looks a lot like Rose Rosette Disease. If so, remove instantly!

I have not been here for a while so I'm very sorry to have to agree with rose rosette. If you have not heard of this virus I'm quit certain that there are articles on here that you can read. Do a search on the web for photo's rrd/rrv there are many. Once again I'm so sorry about your roses. The virus is fatal to the rose.
