I bought "Easy Does It" a few weeks back now & put her in the ground. All her leaves turned yellow & mostly all fell off. I trimmed the snot out of the bush and there was healthy new leaves down on the canes (leaf pimples). Is there anything I can do to help? Should I feed? Did I stress it out? Is it Rose Mosaic? I haven't had this problem yet... I am not sure if it's blackspot.. I see it so rarely I don't really remember what it looks like. A lot of times I get roses that have some problem (powdery mildew, black spot, etc), but after they're in my yard for a while, those go away (extreme dry).

I can try & take a pic tonight if it doesn't rain...

In my garden, yellow leaves usually mean the rose isn't getting enough water. If this is the case, it may have been craving water even before you planted it. I wouldn't have trimmed it. I'm sure it will be fine. It's a very vigorous rose.

Well, I did water that area pretty extensively on Sunday... hopefully that it'll help. I know that a nice day like today (warm but not blustery) will help.
