Do rabbits eat rose bush leaves?
Yes, rabbits in the wild will readily eat roses, both the flowers and leaves of the plant. In fact rose buds are particularly sweet and succulent, and even humans occasionally enjoy them. However, the leaves are somewhat more fibrous than many other plants and are most likely harder for a rabbit to digest. Since there are several more easily digested and nutritious plants and vegetables readily available, rose leaves are lower on the list of items one would regularly feed to a pet rabbit. If yours happens to like them, there's no reason why the occasional sprig of fresh leaves wouldn't be a welcome addition to their diet.

Why would the leaves on your wild rose bushes be turning yellow in June?
== == * You've either let the rose bush get too dry or over watered it. Also check on the back of the leaves (also in the rose pedals) for bugs. If you have any insects on the bush then use 'Safer's Bar Soap' use a potato peeler and put the pieces in a spray water and add tepid water, then spray your rose bushes (all of them or any other plants around them) including the group at the bottom of the plants. Safe Soap is environmentally friendly and it's been used for years. * Yellow leaves are caused by many different factors: too dry, too wet, insects, disease, lack of Nitrogen, lack of air, too much sun, not enough sun just to list a few. Insufficient amounts of Nitrogen can also cause leaves to yellow. If this is the case, water rose bush well. four or so hours later, when roots are actively "drinking" water with Rose Food (fertilizer) following concentration directions on package.
