|It's not unusual for transplanted shrubs to show some stress for a couple of weeks. I'd allow them to settle in another 2-3 weeks. Once the roots establish themselves they will perk up. When you see new growth you can prune them back to remove any dead stems and branches. In the meantime, just water as usual. They'll recover in a few weeks. Best wishes with your roses.
