Newly planted knockout rose has yellow leaves

Asked June 4, 2020, 7:51 PM EDT

i bought 4 knockout rose plants (2 red, 2 pink) from a local plant nursery i plant them all 4 days ago and the bottom of only one has leaves turning yellow. I know there a different causes hoping you can help me catch it early so i can fix the problem. They are planted on the east side of my house getting strong sun mainly from 8am-2pm i have been watering them good but not excessively. when i bought it the blooms were not open yet so they seem to blooming healthy

This is likely transplant shock. It sounds like you are doing the right things for these plants by keeping them moist but not saturated. Perhaps this one is just in a spot that doesn’t drain as quickly. Keep an eye on them and send another message if the problem does not go away.
