Transplant stress can make roses wilt and drop their flower buds so I think that's what is going on with your rose. I would move it out of direct sunshine for right now and keep it protected from the wind. As soon as the roots establish themselves you will see new growth and at that time you can move it back into a sunny spot. The idea is to baby your plant along for the next week or two. It should perk up within that time and once you see new growth you can prune off the dead or dying stems and leaves. Good luck with your new rose!
