If your roses look dry, withered or even “dead”, they’re NOT dead! Most of our mountain roses sold are in dormant or just came out of dormancy, and once the roses are planted in moisturized soil and given couple of days, the roses WILL open up and start growing and new roots will grow out soon as well.
Dried leaves from the outer layer of the plant are consumed by the plant itself to provide nutrition and it’s NOT a sign of an unhealthy plant.
The mountain roses are just like other succulents, do not over water them, especially you have to avoid water directly into the center of leaves, if the water were left in the center, it may cause the plant to rot.
During the hot summer time (above 85 F), the mountain roses WILL go dormant, during the dormancy, the plants should be kept in a bright place WITHOUT direct sunlight, and DO NOT water it when it’s in dormant. Also, keep the soil dry if the temp is below 38 to 40 F, too much water in the soil may hurt the roots during night time.This
