Planted roses in early November, normal, for Arkansas, planted the seedling and grew very well, very green and healthy and then I got sick and it froze over a matter of a week or so, throughout the past week, they've gotten brown and withering, the leaves are falling off, the plant stock itself looks still good and green, should I just prune them all the way back so they have a better chance of recuperating, or should I just slowly prune them. I don't know how much more cold we might get it jumps back-and-forth between 60 and 70 and dropping down to 20 and 30. The pictures reflect what they all look like at this point, as I said, they were very green and healthy and growing before the cold weather hit … I live in Fort smith Arkansas…

Hybrid Tea roses do not handle warm, twenty degrees, warm , twenty degrees, well.
I lost more that way than any other.

I would trim that one and cover till sub-thirty degree weather stops. I tip my hat to you.

Good, they went into the freeze very healthy. I am quite sure they will recover well.

Mine were completely crispy after the freeze, but there are already tiny new leaves coming back. I will wait to prune back as I normally do in mid February.

It was very cold in my area (around 0F) this winter and I am learning a lot now how to handle roses after cold temperature. My roses are covered with pine bark mulch and I see green branches under, but in case if some roses will show up in Spring not in a good condition,
what needs to be done:
1) When time is right in your zone start to prune roses up to healthy green tissue.
If you do not see any, you have to prune up to the graft area (if rose is grafted) and open it.
2) Use root stimulators to force new buds B vitamins mix , Succinic Acid, Mycorrhizal Fungi Root Enhancer or others.
3) Cover the rose with non-transparent pot, time to time check it to see if any new buds/leaves developed.
4) As soon as you see new development, not earlier, remove the cover and start to feed your rose with fertilizer rich in Nitrogen.

Hope it helps!

I would like to recommend also use HB-101 stimulator to help roses to restore after winter damage. I just used it to spray my petunias seeds and they showed up on the 4 th day, it's unbelievable. Usually it takes up to 10-15 days.

Never heard of it before but here is how much larger quatities, which in reality is far, far, far cheaper cost.

I wonder if the granular works as well?

Im trying to understand exactly what this does for roses. Have you used it yet, Elena? My roses are extremely vigorous here, but Im all ears if it might help with BS resistance.

Vaporvac, yes I have used it for roses previously when I saw them slow developing, especially after winter or new bare root roses. I do not pretend that I can explain or understand all biological process happened, but this vitalizer helps to stimulate new buds and new grows.
I just mixed a small quantity with water and sprayed or watered.
Last Summer I used it and some others stimulators to bring my roses back to life and I was not able to say what's really helped.
When I used for petunias and got seedling on fourth day, sounds like a miracle. nodding
