Back in May, I found this rose on sale. It had several blooms and looked so happy and healthy. The 5-gallon pot it was in had no label, just the price $12 so I snatched it.
I put it in the grownd, next to a fence and I have to say that it hasn't been doing that well. The unusually hot summer did a number on my roses but this one seemed to be particularly affected. However, I don't know if it was heat stress or the bush just didn't like the location. It's still n that spot and looking better but nothing like it was when I brought it home, even though I've given it the same care as my other rose bushes.
What it looked like about a month after I put it in the ground. The blooms on this bush have several shades of pink and coral-pink.
And what it looks like today. Those leaves don't look good and I have no idea why.
