Answer: Thanks for the additional information. I am still convinced your rose is suffering from transplant shock. When roses are actively growing most of their energy goes into developing new leaves, stems and flowers. If you moved it to a sunnier spot, or one with drainage that differs from its original spot - or if you severed too many of the roots when you moved it, all of these things will add to the shock of being unearthed. At this point I would just give it some time to adjust to its new spot. I garden in the Pacific Northwest where it never gets really hot, so I know what your gardening zone is like. The only difference is that we get tons of rain so I don't have to water my roses twice a week, but I do water when the rain fails to appear. We have lots of problems with black spot, though, so I guess it's a trade off. I think your rose bush will recover in time. Enjoy your garden!
