I particularly chose this rose for its colouring, but its growth habit has become almost wild. It is only about 3 years old, was pruned heavily last July (I am in Australia), and now has about 20 stems, each at least 4-5 feet long - but no flowers! Does anyone have any ideas?

Many vigorous roses will make growth at the expense of making flowers, as there is no energy left over to grow and also produce flowers. Pruning will activate new growth in a rose plant so not pruning as hard and not giving the bush any fertilizer should make it bloom.

Mine is a big climber -I already discussed it on the Web- about 10 feet in a tree, with
partial shade.
Two years ago the tree died.
Deprived of the tree's foliage protection, the rose lost its vigor and is now a bush, while
its cuttings grow happily in others trees.
For rebloom you have to wait some years, like with any other HPs -and indeed climbing
Hybrid Teas as well-. After five years you may expect good results.
