Overwatering is a far more common problem for the Confederate rose, and there are several signs you should look for when this occurs. Generally, an overwatered Confederate rose will have yellowing leaves and may even drop some leaves. Also, overwatering can cause the overall structure of your plant to shrivel and may also promote root rot. On the other hand, an underwatered Confederate rose will also begin to wilt. It may also display leaves that are brown or brittle to the touch. Whether you see signs of overwatering or underwatering, you should be prepared to intervene and restore the health of your Confederate rose.
