hi all!!

a friend of mine at work is having a problem with her rose bush, it's about 10 years old or so but after it flowers, the leaves die and fall off,but right off, new leaves grow and it flowers again. this is a vicious cycle. she cares for it such as feedings and things,but it continues to act up. any ideas why????
