Q.Why Is My New Petite Knock Out Rose Dying?

Zone Murrieta, CA 92562 Zone 9b-10 | Anonymous added on July 28, 2022 | Answered

All the leaves have dried up and fallen off. What I thought were bud nodes are getting brown. I have followed instructions for planting (repotting from the store) and care of these plants. What have I done wrong? Can I save my rose? I’m desperate to bring it back to life. Help!
