How long after planting the Zephirine Drouhin Rose Bush will it bloom? I planted last spring, the foliage is healthy and strong but still no blooms in late June. I live in Northern Texas

Hello, Welcome!
Not sure where everyone is, probably out playing in the dirt. I`m on my way outside to look at how far behind I am D'Oh!
Is this your first rose bush? I have thought about getting a Zephirine Drouhin a few years ago. Don`t know why I didn`t. I looked it up in our rose data base Lovey dubby .
Do you know how to use the data base? It has a lot of info, esp. on your rose.
To the left of the blue home tab is the `Plants Database`. click on it to pull the menu down. Now click on the `Search by Name`- type in rosa zephirine drouhin (be sure to spell it correctly).

Ooops ! I`m really no good at computers.
Anyway,click on the magnify glass icon and that should take you to your rose. Be sure to scroll ALL the way down to the bottom of the page to the listed articles.
You can look at some info till someone can be of more help.
I need to run now, be back later. Patience. Smiling

Moved to the Rose Forum.

How much sun does it get? Water? Did you add anything to the planting hole? Compost?
Fertilizer? Many newly planted roses take their first year to really develop their root system so they can support all those new leaves and eventual blooms. The old saying 'First year sleep, second year creep, third year leap' can be applied to many plants including roses.

Here is the main database info page for roses.

thank you for the replies. I put some miracle grow dirt in the hole. I have a young male boxer that digs up everything else. I also put the Jobes rose food sticks in the ground this year. It gets sun from 12 noon till dusk and I have the sprinklers on 2x a week and will water if its too hot. The foliage looks super healthy, and I am hoping that next year I will have a rose explosion. I've had rose bushes, climbers and ground before and they all have bloomed the first year. I will be patient.

I planted two Zepherine Drouhin roses north of a very dense alligator juniper. When they reached six feet in height in their fifth year they were tall enough to get a full six to ten hours of sun in summer. That's when they started to bloom.

It's been worth the wait.

Note that the hammock is almost always in full shade but the rose from about waist height on up is in full sun through most of the day in late May, June, and early July.

No pruning yet. It's a little bit shrubby right now for training on an arch. It probably would have grown taller if I had started taking out canes last year. I think I'll take out about half the canes next year to encourage long cane development.
