The Q&A Archives: Flower Carpet Rose problem

Question: I purchased 3 of your Flower Carpet Roses back in April. They've been doing fine, except for one white one has been slowly looking worse and worse. The others are all planted in the same bed with this one, but it looks like its dying. The lower leaves are turning brown and the ones above it are turning yellow. Only the outer layer is still green and I haven't seen any buds in the last week either. Does it just need some food or is it something more?

Answer: I'm not sure, based on your description, just what might be going on with your white carpet rose. I'd prune it back a bit to encourage new growth, and feed it with a rose food (in amounts as listed on the label). It should perk up soon.
