Got 1/2 hr sunshine this afternoon  in Kent. The rest of the day is anyone's guess.

If the plants are newly bought, check the root systems before planting out. Nurseries force plants along to keep a schedule of sales and we've had atrocious weather to boot. Your plants may be growing beyond what they can sustain.

Last year I bought a rose from B&Q that had absolutely no roots and had to leave it in its pot for the rest of the season.

@david spikes, how can you have snow and a lovely growing garden at the same time? I have that white salvia by the way, its one of my favourite plants and if it was evergreen, which its not, or at least start growing early in spring instead of late spring, it would be perfect in my humble opinion.

If you cut the plants back hard after flowering has finished, they will grow a fresh set after two-three weeks, probably less with all this rain.

White roses going pink?

I have a white rose that is doing the exact same thing, except its a spotting of pink. I also have a yellow rose spotted pink as well.

I can only put this down to the unusual weather unless anyone else has more experience with this?
