Hi - I transplanted a 6 year old knockout rose last month (mid May). I've been watering it when dry but it still has not recovered from the shock. Now all the leaves are wilted and brown. Have I lost it? If not, what can I do to help it? Thanks!

You'll just have to wait and see............here in Utah zone 5b I think mid-March to mid-April would have been better. Before it had leafed out.

Thank you. Yes, the timing was not ideal, but it coincided with a complete garden redesign that happened in May and was unavoidable.

I'll bet there is another one at a nursery if it doesn't make it......You maybe should have cut it back a little more to compensate for the root loss.
