Question: One of my roses it is dying, its getting dry of each branch. How can a save it

Answer: Roses grow well in Texas but they can suspend their growth and flowering during the hot summer months. I'd leave the plants alone for now. As long as they are watered regularly, roses will take the heat and the blazing sun (although you should expect some leaf scorch). They usually stop growing and flowering during the months of July and August, but begin to grow again in September. When the weather cools in September, prune them back to encourage healthy new growth and they should flower for you all through the fall, winter and spring months.
