I have a noumber of rose bushes that are not blooming but keep getting taller. what can I do to get them blooming?

If they have rebloomed for you in the past. You know they aren't once bloomers.

Then you can prune them at a healthy five leaflet configuration and see if that motivates them. If it's really hot where you are, I'd consider waiting the heat out to do anything.

my new "new dawn " rose bush has not given out any roses yet. It has been planted since march. It has great foliage but no roses. What could be the problem

Prune to the five leave configuration, sometimes that will kick them into gear.
And if you haven't, feed them.
Good luck

It is not unusual for climbers (especially New Dawn) to not bloom for even up to three years. These are very vigorous roses and use all their energy up by making growth. Let them grow tall as that is what you bought them to do. Don't fertilize them the first year as they don't need any encouragement. Make sure you put a thick 6 inch mulch of anything you can get in your area because roses love to have cool roots. If possible try and bend the canes as this will make more side shoots emerge and that is where the flowers will come from. Water well, especially if the weather gets really hot.
Nicole, your America is also busy making new growth faster than the others and so is using up all it's energy. It will bloom, maybe not until next year, but it will definately bloom for you.
