How big is the pot? How long has the rose been in it? Where in CA are you located (what sort of temperatures have you been having?)

Redondo Beach, CA 90278 I believe that is zone 10 B
It's a small pot, I guess maybe 5 gallons, plant has been in it for a few years, three or four?

That poor rose!

Golly Whip -- What if you were forced to get your feet into a pair of shoes you wore when you were 5 years old?

TORTURE!

That rose needs to either:
1. Go into the ground NOW, or . . .
2. Be potted up to a 25-Gallon Pot.

I'm not exaggerating, trust me.

That still doesn't answer the original question. This shouldn't be happening even with the cramped conditions

Whip ...

Of course it does ... Smiling When the roots are cramped inside of a pot, they cannot absorb moisture or nutrients. No matter how much you water the pot, if the roots can't work, they cannot send up moisture to the top growth.

The brown tip on the terminal leaf is a sign of water stress.

The yellowing of the leaves is a sign that the rose is abandoning those leaves because it cannot support that top growth.

That leaf pattern is also a sign that there is salt build up from whatever you have used as a fertilizer for your rose in that pot and that the soil no longer has any nutrients in it for the rose.

So, yes, this should be happening if a rose is growing in a pot that is too small for it's root mass.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Growing roses in containers is kind of tricky.

You might want to take a look at the thread titled "Roseville Noisette". There is a discussion about growing roses in containers and roots ... Smiling

The thread ""Roseville Noisette"" in Roses forum

Good luck with your rose ... I tip my hat to you.
