The Q&A Archives: Rose Tree, yellow leaves

Question: Hello;
I have a large rose tree. It has beautiful flowers but recently the many leaves have turned yellow. Do you know what the problem is and waht I can do to solve this problem? Thank you.

Answer: If the leaves are yellow but not spotted, it could be due to heat stress, water stress, or simply the natural shedding of older leaves. As long as the new growth is green and healthy, I'd chalk it up to heat stress or natural aging of the leaves. If the new growth is also affected, root stress from over watering or a need for nutrients is the more likely cause. Hope this information helps you determine just what is going on with your rose.
