Q.Climbing rose will not bloom

Zone Nashville, TN | Anonymous added on May 21, 2020 | Answered

I have grown rose for years and feel I am well versed with most of the “rules” for good roses. But I bought a Honeymoon Arborose climber from J&P last year and it has never thrived. It leafed out quickly and has a lot of what looks like healthy foliage but only one small rather puny bloom so far this year. Last year it had a couple of buds that never really opened and were brownish (it is a white/blush rose) A lot of the leaves have a kind of veiny pattern on them but I couldn’t find anything on the web that seemed to match. At first glance it appears very healthy until you realize that it never really blooms. I suspect there is a systemic problem and I need to just toss the rose but I hate to do that. Gets lots of sun. Water should not be an issue. Any ideas? Thank you so much for your time!
