SOS: What's eating my rose up?

6 years ago
last modified: 6 years ago

I got an Alnwick Rose (David Austin) a couple of weeks ago and it's starting to bloom! Unfortunately, it's also starting to go south. I saw a couple aphids on it today. Is this aphid damage? Something else?

It's in a huge container and I keep it well watered (but not soggy) with lots of sun. Zone 6/Connecticut. It looked really good the first two weeks but practically overnight it's looking like crap.

What is this damage, and what should I do to fix it? Is it aphids? Is there a spray I ought to use?
