Roses forum: Iceberg Roses - Yellowing Leaves Problem

I recently bought and planted two iceberg roses. They were perfectly fine when I bought them, however within days of planting them some of the leaves have started to yellow. The flowers seem fine, but certain leaves turn yellow (either entirely or partially), and while some turn brown.

What is the problem and how do I fix it? Images attached

Justin , Hurray! Was the rose already with flowers during the transplantation ?
Maybe it's just the stress of a transplant. It's good that your soil looks greasy and the sun does not burn a rose.
I would water it in the evening and spray it in the morning. What is your zone?

I think it maybe stress, I have them too. I just removed the ugly leaves on my roses.

SoCal and Justin, do you live in an area that has alkaline soil? If so, that can inhibit the intake of iron and zinc. Often signs of that are yellowing of leaves but with green veining (interveinal chlorosis). To combat that for my garden, I apply a little bit of acidic fertilizer that one uses for rhodies, azaleas, etc., as both my soil and my water are very alkaline. You can also use sulfur for this too. The sulfur granuals helps to lower the ph of the soil so the plant can take up micronutrients. You can add that when you plant the plant into the soil or apply it twice a year.

How "recently" did you buy and plant them ?
They look like they're just going dormant and should be fine in a month or so, depending on where you are.
