Some one gave me a rose bush several years ago that blooms most of the season. I am not sure of the name, but it has grown very large. Is it alright to prune the bush in the fall?

You can prune your rose bush down in December or January when it is dormant. If you prune in the fall it will develop new growth which can be damaged in cold temperatures. If you wait until it is dormant to prune, it won't develop new growth until the following spring, after all threat of frost has passed. Best wishes with your rose bush.
