Weluvroses said:Are you giving it sufficient waterings? Bare roots need more waterings than container planted Roses..... I have several bare root roses planted this year in the ground. I water them about every 3-4 days depending on how hot it's been.

If that is the case, your rose might have a drainage problem. They "like" to get a good watering, and then be allowed to dry out a little before the next watering.
In continued days of rain, if the drainage is not wonderful, water can build up. If it's sitting in standing water, your rose could actually be drowning.
jerijen said:Leaf, there is only one place on our property where we found poor drainage. Dug the hole. Filled it with water. It just SAT. Took hours to disappear.
We had to make a French Drain. Dug down another 15 inches or so, and filled that extra hole with gravel. Planted on top of that, the rose succeeded, because the water had somewhere to go.
seilMI said:When ever you plant a new rose in a new spot you should do a drainage check. Dig the hole for your rose then fill it with water and walk away. Come back about an hour later and check it. If the hole is mostly drained and empty your OK. If the hole is still nearly full of water you need to go deeper and repeat the test or do what Jeri suggested with the gravel.
