I planted 5 bareroot roses in January. 3 of them died. It it okay to plant 3 new potted rose plants in the same place? Also, one of the bareroots, has a bud but leaves are turning yellow, too much water??

You can replant roses where you've lost yours. Typically it's water stress that kills roses in the desert, not disease problems. Plant your bare root rose in well amended soil (add compost) so water is retained but the site still drains well. Don't worry about the yellowing leaves at this point. The new leaves your rose develops will be ready to grow in the Arizona sun. Water your roses deeply once or twice a week during the growing season. Best wishes with your roses!
