I relocated this rose tree last summer, unfortunately during the hottest day of the year. I watered it the next few weeks and I have drip system 3 times a week too. But it looked dead to me. Do you think it's dead?

It does look a bit grey.

Prune it about an inch from the top to see if there's any "activity." It should show green between the inner and the bark. If not try a bit lower and so on.
Most of our roses are starting to show signs of growth.
