A lot of roses go semi-dormant in summer heat, lose leaves and stop blooming. I think your rose looks pretty good and will probably bloom when it cools off in the fall. Roses often fend for themselves remarkably well. I don't know what that is growing with her, but it rather resembles a cottonwood.

Welcome! to ATP

Since you don't know the rose, it's possible that it is a once bloomer. Once blooming roses put out their blooms on old wood. That's the new growth from this year that the rose "thinks" is old wood next year.

If you have been pruning your rose in spring, you have been cutting off the wood that would eventually provide blooms for your rose. Since that wood is gone, the plant won't bloom again until the following year, if you don't prune it until after it blooms.

I think the insect damage I am seeing is from saw fly.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

I would remove the vine that's climbing on her & wait to see if she blooms this spring. If she does not, I would move her to a new spot in the yard. Looks like she don't like where she is planted.
