Rose bush - dead or alive? - Knowledgebase Question

I've recently moved a rose bush that was growing roses to another area of the garden. This was my first time relocating it. I thought I did it right and water it twice a day, but it looks like it's dying. Leaves crimple and all. Is it too late?

Twice a day is excessive and can be actually suffocating the roots if the soil remains too wet. Water your rose deeply twice a week, allowing the top of the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. As soon as the roots establish you'll see lots of healthy new growth.
