I don't know much about roses, it looked nice so I plunked it in the ground and have been watering it regularly. It's a new planting, had it about 10 days, give or take a day.

It looks fine to me. What makes you think it's dying?

Most of the flowers dried up. Also I think a vole was in the area. I noticed some tunneling and a small hole in this bed and was worried the varmint made a meal of the roots. Update is there are new flowers on it, so I guess it's ok. I collapsed the tunnels and hole, no signs of it since.

The rose looks just fine to me. The leaves look healthy, so I am guessing the plant is just finishing the first round of flowering.

Could that rose be a climber? The stems look healthy but as if they need some support. I wouldn't be surprised if your rose turns into a nice white climber. Is it white or pink? Could you show us the bloom?

Yes, it's a climber. I've since secured it with some velcro strips. That's the only picture, and now that you mention it, I'm not sure the color, but I think it's white.
