Can this rose be saved?
This rose called "Bonica" planted in 2011, was beautiful last year. BUT this spring it looks like it might not make it. My soil shrunk away from the root, and yes it was mulched heavily with leaves over the winter. I have not pruned off the dead wood yet, I wanted to see what grew first.
As you can see in the picture it is still alive, but what should I do to save it?
