we have 5 bank roses we planted last year, they are growing like crazy but not one of them produced a flower this year. We see others that have bloomed. What would be the problem with ours

Lady Banks roses need full sunshine in order to bloom well and in the case of yours, they may be a little too immature to flower freely. I suspect yours will begin flowering more profusely this summer and even more next summer. Lady Banks blooms on old wood so don't prune it back too severely, but do prune it in early summer, after it has finished blooming. This will provide lots of old wood for next year's floral display. Lady Banks rose begins blooming in May in the Texas Hill Country and blooms for approximately 4 weeks. It may bloom sooner in Ft. Worth, depending upon the weather. Hope this answers your question!
