White Out rosebush lost all petals

rafuscoJune 21, 2014

I planted a White Out Rose back in April. It did well and was full of blooms within about 6 weeks. We went on vacation for 5 days, during which temperatures here were in the low 80s with some rain. When we got home I noticed that every rose has lost its petals. I am wondering a) what happened and b) what I can do now. Should I deadhead what is there? I am a novice garder so I appreciate any advice.

Snip or break off the spent blooms. I would leave a few and see if they set hips (fruit). If this variety does not set hips, then there is no need to deadhead. (Hips consume energy that should be going into growth and more blooms). The plant will bloom again in six weeks,
