Hi.... [wayey]
I bought a shrub rose the other day and planted it into a pot and sat it on my porch. [flower]
I looked out yesterday and the tops were already wilting.. [Frown] I watered it and did not disturb the roots. [dunno]
Any thoughts on this? [thinker]

Try again to post:
Greg does the place you bought this Rose normaly have healthy plants, did Rose get dropped or get too hold or cold on way home,Does the pot drain good. [dunno] I know these are only question but I have found if I ask myself a lot of questions I can narrow down what could be wrong. I normally have some wilt when I replant any flower.

Hi, Greg!
Sorry to hear about your rose problem. It sounds as though it may have a bit of transplant shock but we've also had some really cold, unseasonable weather here too. That may be the cause for wilt.
If the plant is in a clay pot, the soil may be drying out too quickly. You might want to try keeping it in a semi-shaded, wind protected area for a few days while keeping track of the soil moisture. If it perks back up, fine; if not, and you bought it from a reputable nursery ask for their advice.
