My rose leaves are suddenly twisted and deformed.

Leaf stalks that are twisted in a spiral, stems that are distorted and reddish are caused by a weed killer that was used on a windy day and has drifted on to the roses. Cut off all the infected stems and leaves then feed and water well. If the chemical hasn't reached the bud union or the roots then the rose will survive.
