    Welcome to the forum!! :)

    How often do you water it? Did you deadhead the flowers, or let them die off naturally? Is it root-bound? It looks like there are white patches on some of the leaves, could you post a picture of one of those, please? :)

    I agree with @MaryMary . In addition, these white spots look like white spots on your jasmine. Perhaps it is some kind of fungus on the leaves.
    Here roses often discard leaves after purchase. But we have a reason - a change in conditions for the plant.
    The store buys plants from a flower base. The flower base maintains a low temperature. If I buy a plant on a flower base (it's cheaper), I dress a warm sweater. Rose does not like a sharp change in conditions. But perhaps in your country it is different. :)

    Welcome to the forums sebey07. :)

    Roses are both hungry and thirsty plants. Can you tell us the size of the pot it's planted in please? I suspect it needs a bigger pot, new/more soil and possibly feeding. Roses should also be watered at the base of the plant avoiding leaf contact.

    The white patches seems like dirt as there was rain couple of days back. I did wipe out the dirt from the leave of the jasmine and it looks a lot better now but here the leaves seems to drying up. And i had re-potted the plant a few days after i bought it. But do u guys think i should change the pot again ??

    Your rose is a little over crowded with stems and should have a more open shape, this will let air circulate and help keep disease at bay. The diagram below explains how to prune when the rose is dormant, please ignore the 'click to print' tab. In cooler countries January to March is the ideal time but I can't help with pruning times in the UAE, sorry. Even though your rose seems to be in full growth I would be inclined to take out a couple of the centre canes now, it won't harm the plant.

    The white patches on the leaves could be mildew, this is a sign of either poor air circulation through the plant or possibly watering from above with the exception of rain. Although, in hotter climates the combination of rain and heat could create the humidity to cause mildew.

    Can you tell us the size of the pot the rose is currently in please.

    Thank you so much for the post. I managed to clear out the leaves and stems from the center and pot is 10" in diameter. As its getting hotter outside i have kept the plant inside the house were its much cooler and by the window. Should i change the pot ??

    Has the rose still got access to sunshine now you have moved it indoors? They really need six hours a day or more to flourish. A ten inch pot is much to small for a full shrub rose, something the size of a half barrel would be best, allowing it to spread it's roots.

    Roses are demanding plants particularly when they are grown in pots. They will need watering more often and that in turn will wash nutrients from the soil, so will need feeding regularly too.

    That's was a really congested Rose I'm with Sheal I'd Guess It's been Grown under intense artificial light & probably A high nitrogen feed to produce so much leaf then encouraged to bloom in mass. She did needs thinning out to get some air & good shape. Plants are often grown for a quick sale, like caged hens:( little care for the long term Health of the plant just in for the big buck:rolleyes: ...... but now she is with you & pruned I'm sure it will be blooming lovely in know time:)
