Please see attached photos of a sick Iceberg rose in our garden.
All other Iceberg roses next to it are very lush and healthy.
Can you please suggest how to deal with this issue?
I live in Melbourne Australia. We are now (late October) at the end of Spring.

Take a close look at the stem - and graft. It is not being strangled is it?

Yes, it is very tight, but the same applies to all the other roses. So I am not sure if this is the reason. Regardless I will loosen all the strings that tie the roses to their posts.
Thank you.

My Mothersday Polyantha looks bad and the other roses I have look good. It looked very healthy early in the spring but now some of the leaves have brown starting on the tips and then advancing further up. Also, the leaves look tattered, like a wind blown damage. I am wondering if Polyanthas are susceptible to hot temps early in the season which is what we have had. This rose looked bad this way last year when we also had unusually high temps early but I had transplanted it the prior year so I thought that was the problem then. Now I am perplexed as to cause. I wondered if anti disease sprays could cause this damage but none or most of the other roses do not show problems with sprays and it had shown no problems in the past. I have added insecticide spray to my regimen but as with the other spray, none of the others have had problems. I spray in the evening also. Any helpful suggestions or knowledge of polyanthas?

Has anyone successfully grown ' Master Hugh' in part shade or does it demand full sun?

My first encounter with Master Hugh was at Vintage Gardens. It grew in the jungle of roses, under large trees and it didn't appear to be unhappy about it at all. I would think that as long as it receives the six hours of sun average in your Australian climate, it should be fine.

I have Climbing Papa Meilland and he's driving me nuts. Murder to try and train as the canes just kink rather than bending, and of course very prickly. Then the blooms are sky-high, far too far away to sniff or pick. I am thinking of turning him into a bush. Can this be done?

To bend the canes, You'll have to wait until this years' canes are wooden enough. Later in the season would be better.
Don't wait untill they're older or till next season. They'll probably break.
Maybe this-one is right for spiraling around a pillar, instead of bending it horizontally.
Fan-shaped might be suitable too.
I stopped training Westerland as a climber for the same reason. It's rather a shrub... and feels well that way!
PS: I can't find the height of this climber.
