We have a climber that we believe to be Blaze, and which was transplanted from my husband's grandparents' yard. It blooms profusely for about two weeks around Memorial Day, but in spite of feeding and watering, has never re-bloomed in the same season. We do not know how long this rose had been with the grandparents. Are there older varieties of Blaze that do not re-bloom? Is there a way to force re-blooming? The plant looks totally uninteresting for most of the season!

The original version of Blaze is a once blooming rose, and if you have it, there is nothing you can do to force it to rebloom. It's genetic. In the early decades of the last Century, there appeared some repeat blooming mutuations, or sports, of it which rebloomed. It was originally sold as Improved Blaze, and you can still find old catalogs advertising it that way. If your Blaze is the original, it's actually a museum piece, as the repeat blooming one is pretty much all you'll find in commerce.

I have Blaze rose and I'm wondering what I have to do with it in the fall. Should it be cut back
and if so how far down? Should it be covered? I live in Canada so it gets pretty cold. Any help
would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I have the same problem. It is growing but has not bloomed again since it was planted.

It may take three or more years for it to establish itself. It blooms on old wood or wood produced the previous year. If you haven't protected that growth over the winter and it has died back, you will not get blooms. It starts all over again in spring as if it were year one. I am sorry it is taking so long but it will go and bloom like crazy when it is established
