Can anyone advise me please as to why this rose grows bright pinkish blemishes, so much that it appears if this is how it is meant to look. Would this be right or is it some kind of disease? Thanks for any help.

Hi, Janet,
Pink spots can be caused by thrips or by a fungus which grew after water/rain landed on the flowers. Hold a piece of white paper under a flower with the spots and gentle tap the flower. If it's thrips, they will fall on the paper. You can spray for those. If no thrips, it is probably a fungus. In that case, try to avoid getting any water on the blossoms if/when you water.
