What's wrong with this flower?

We've got fifteen rose bushes. A few of them look weird, like this one.

The plant does have aphids on it. I've sprayed for aphids, three
weekends in a row. Still fighting them off. Could the insecticide be
making the plant suffer?

What could be wrong?

Is there a plant group I can post to and ask the Flickr-universe for feedback?

Thoughts are welcome in comments or email.
