    HI HU. You can put your zone and location with your name to help us better help you. : ) I don't recognize that problem, unfortunately. Also, try cross-posting to the regular rose forum for a wider audience. Things are quiet here these days. : (

    Where do you live? Could be Chilli thrips, Go to rose.org American Rose Society and look up a consulting rosarian in your area who could help you with a diagnosis.

    Yep, could be chili thrips. Any buds would be undersized and burnished/brownish on the sepals, bud has difficulty opening if it can open at all. As temps go up, thrips reproduce more quickly. Good luck.
