|Plants can be quite tough and recover from poor care so I think there's a chance your rose tree will resume growth once it gets the care it needs. Roses grow and flower best in full sunshine. They need moist but well draining soils and appreciate being fed during the growing season. For now I'd just place it in full sunshine and water when the top of the soil feels dry to the touch. When it does start to grow feed it lightly with a half strength dilution of water soluable fertilizer to encourage it to establish a good root system. It may not flower for you this year but you should be able to revive it. I hope it grows strong and healthy for you!
