we have 3 tea rose bushes next to each other. a red with a white on each side. The red is fine but a couple of times over the summer the whites loose all their leaves for a couple of weeks then they come back and start flowering and look hardy. The soil is clay. I fertilize every 2-3 months. The sun shines on them for a out 60 % of the day. They get plenty of water.
