Answer: It doesn't sound as though your rose is very happy, does it? Roses sometimes resent competition from other plants for moisture and nutrients, preferring to reside alone. I would dig and move the rose to its own container where it doesn't have to compete. I think you'll see a big difference in its growth once it becomes established and it should develop lots of healthy foliage and flowers. Good luck with your rose!
