Rose leaves have turned pink

Hello, the leaves of our rose have turned pink. Not orange, brown or yellow but a very clear pink. We are sure it isn't black spot or rust but don’t know for sure as there is nothing on the internet describing or showing pink leaves. Can anyone help?

    Has your rose been sprayed with anything?

    That's what i am thinking too, @Dovefromabove

    My husband sprayed with Rose Clear, it was covered with black fly and and our attempts to remove them hadn't worked. We’ve used this spray before and not had this reaction so it didn’t occur to us

    Spraying when the sun is out can damage the leaves. Definitely looks like spray damage. Blackfly may look unsightly, usually in early summer. But with regular spraying with just water will knock them off the stalks, buds and sometimes leaves. Always spray when the sun is down or on a dull day.

    This makes perfect sense, thank you. Happier to use water as we don’t like using sprays. Thank you for your advice
