I'm a newbie to rose bushes, having just planted my first two this year. One, planted in front of my house, is a Therese Bugnet and receives full sun all during the day. It's thriving.
The other, a Chicago Peace, has not grown a single leaf since being planted roughly two months ago. It has gotten a little taller, but some of the edges of the bark are black. They were a little black even at the store, so I just assumed it was natural colouring and that it'd grow out of it as it got more sun. It is planted in my backyard, which receives sun throughout the day, but not the sweltering afternoon light.
Should I be concerned about my rose bush? I feel like it should have grown some leaves or something by now and the blackness concerns me, but I've never done this before, so for all I know it could be totally normal... if it's not, what do you all recommend I do about it?
