Hello All. I just joined. I have not done much gardening in the past but now that I am home all of the time it suddenly went way up on the activity list.
This rose plant/bush has been growing and surviving in my yard for many years with no help from me.
I am wondering what kind of rose it is and what I can do to better care for it. Only 1 flower at the moment. There were several a couple of months ago.
I also just planted the Li'l Bang Coreopsis in the foreground. Hoping I did it correctly and they will come back next year.

Welcome to NGA, JoeBost67. I am not good at identifying roses but the people in the Plant Id may be useful. You can also investigate using helpmefind.com/roses.

If those bricks are made of something that can leach lime, move them away a little more as roses prefer somewhat acidic soils (although they tolerate alkaline soils... to a point of course). I would add some mulch to minimize evaporation and protect the roots from temperature extremes.

Thank you for the advice on the bricks and mulch. I never would have thought about the composition of the bricks. They were just lying around so I used them, no idea what they are made of. Maybe I should test the pH of the soil.

As a f.y.i: my soil is typically around 7.6 so it is alkaline with lots of organic compost and composted manure. In that scenario, my roses do not show symptoms of chlorosis in the leaves. If the soil gets more alkaline than that, I may start to 'see' issues but the organic compost and composted manure help a lot.

Pretty rose! It's really hard to tell a variety from just one picture. We would need lots of pictures of the rose in all stages and buds and leaves and thorns etc. to have any chance of IDing it. Your In MA and you've had it a while so it's winter hardy. You also said it bloomed early this season so it is not a once bloomer. It looks like it is probably a Hybrid Tea but how tall does it get? Could also be a climber if it sends out long canes. Like I said, really hard to tell. The more info you can give us the better chance we have to name it.

Thanks SeilMl
I took some additional pictures. Please ignore the roofing shingles and the window. It is growing next to my very old garage.
I don't have any pictures with other stages of growth at the moment. Earlier in the summer it had grown up through the shingles and out through the crack in the windowsill. I cut that back to extricate it from the structure. There were a few more flowers on that part. Max height maybe 5'. I am happy to provide more information as needed.

Do you have any idea of when the rose was planted.? Are the blooms fragrant?

I bought the house in 2001 and it might have been there since then. I can't remember. Its a 3 family house and one of my tenants could have planted it more recently. It's been there for at least 10 years, if not longer.
There is no fragrance, at least none that my smoking addled nose can detect.

If it only gets about 5 ft. It is probably a hybrid tea. There are LOTS of red HTs! When that bud starts to open keep taking pictures of it in all stages.

Thank you, will do.
I have been keeping an eye on it. Is there anything I can do to feed or otherwise help it out?
Do you think that bud will bloom before it gets too cold?

What zone are you in? It should open in a week or two. The cooler it is the slower it will open. If your first frost is coming up soon I would hold off on fertilizing until early next spring. You don't want to stimulate a lot of new growth too close to winter dormancy. Just keep it watered until the ground freezes and wait for spring.

I am in zone 6b. I just added it to my profile too. I didn't know what zone I was in when I first signed up.
Should still have warmish days for a while but getting cooler at night.

Signs of life!
I will post an update next week when I have enough pictures.
I just noticed in the preview that the camera is focusing on the leaves and not the bud. Sorry about that. I will address it in the next batch.

Hi All
Sorry for the delay.
The rose went straight from the last picture I posted to fully open overnight. (Last week)
These are the last pictures I took.
Below that, another bud is developing that might make it before the cold.

Hi All
Did the new pictures help to narrow down what type of Hybrid Tea Rose it is?

Sorry, but no. I don't recognize it. I do love the bright red color.

Might be Blaze. It is technically a climber, but would be shorter in zone 6 without pampering. It is very common.

From the color and bloom form Blaze could be a contender
