|The sad truth is that rose leaves are tender and susceptible to sun burn on hot summer days. Your plant will replace these damaged leaves when temperatures aren't quite so hot. The sunburned leaves make the plant look unattractive, but won't affect blooming; it will continue to bloom right on schedule. You can pull the sunburned leaves off, or you can allow them to drop off on their own. Healthy new leaves will be produced by your plant all summer long.
