What for the roses today? Confider or Triforine?

So a look at the roses tells me I need to do something. The black spot tells me Triforine, the aphids tell me Confidor. The "all in one" rose spray is a little too broad spectrum on the insecticide - the pyrethrum in it will kill all the good bugs as well. Confidor only kills the things that stick their suckers into the plant.

But I think the roses can cope with a few aphids for this week. It might be Triforine, knock that black spot back a bit.

UPDATE: I had some cupric hydroxide left over from spraying the fruit trees. That was perfect for the roses for black spot.
