I bought the 'Veteran's Honor' rose, in memory of my dad, in the Fall of 2009, after his passing in June 2009. Dad was a avid gardener, and his favorite flower was the red rose. He was also a Veteran of the Korean War. It bloomed each year until 2013, after which it has not bloomed. No buds are produced either! Is there hope? What is the issue?

Where do you grow the rose? (Shade/sun/dry soil/under a tree...?)

When do you fertilise it? What do you use for fertiliser? Do you prune it? When?

Lots of things can influence bloom, including pests. If we know more, it will be easier to make some educated guesses as to what might be wrong.
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

It's on the West side of the house. I prune in the Fall and cover it with a pile of mulch. I haven't had a specific fertilizing regimen, or special fertilizer for roses, mainly due to limited funds. It just gets fertilized when everything else is fertilized. There's been no change in it's care since I first planted it, and it hasn't bloomed for several years!!

Other than no blooms, it's a healthy rose!

I'll post a photo when I get a chance.
