I purchased a jacpolpa for my daughter's memorial service and to plant later. Don't know anything about roses - this rose bush was beautiful and loved the scent.
Leaves are turning yellow - too little or too much water? How about sun? I am in Ft Lauderdale now and going back to Atlanta. Help!

There are unfortunately a lot of reasons that leaves may be turning yellow. First on watering, roses like lots of water but do not like to have their roots wet. You did not say if the rose is planted or still in the pot. If in the pot, make sure that there are lots of holes in it for the excess water to drain out. Basically you want the ground the roots are in to be wet, nicely soaked but not with standing water, about 2 or 3 times a week unless it is in a pot - then it may need to be watered every other day or every day, based on heat and amount of sun. And the rose should be getting a minimum of 5 - 6 hours of sun every day.

That's Baldo Villeage's rose pest and disease site and is a great reference. Also feel free to come to the Delphi forum "RosesLovers" for more answers.
