I had a rose that suddenly died last year, when i dug it up and looked at the roots and peeled back the bark I saw the tell tale signs of honey fungus. I also had a choisya that died suddenly. All these plants are on the RHS list of plants susceptible to honey fungus.

Baby Blue Tit

Is it in direct sunlight at all? Could be sun scorch, especially if water has splashed the leaves.
