Questions and Answers
Why hasn't my 'Seven Sisters' Rose bloomed yet?
Did you buy it in bloom?
If so, you know that it will bloom sooner or later.
Did you buy it locally?
That might tell you if its bud hardy in your region.
Has it already bloomed?
It's not recurrent. Once its done for the year, its done.
Did you prune it this spring?
If you did you may have cut away last years wood that would have bloomed this year. Don't prune this rose except to remove deadwood unless its within a couple weeks ago that it finished blooming. Ramblers are usually left unpruned except to remove dead wood. If its in a southern exposure and at the northern extreme of its hardiness the winter sun or spring frosts may be killing the flower buds. Provide shade for the winter from the winter sun that can force it out of dormancy at a time when it might get damaged by cold.
