Roses grow and flower best with 8 hours of sunshine each day. As long as the rose was rooted from a cutting taken from the top of the original rose bush, it should be a clone of the parent and should flower nicely for you. If it was taken from a sucker growing in the ground, it may not flower at all because it came from the rootstock. Rootstocks are generally from wild roses. Their vigorous growth is what makes them good rootstocks, but not such good performers when it comes to flowering. Only time will tell if your new rose bush will actually produce flowers!
