in my garden this rose does not bloom again. Why?

You might have the once-blooming ‘Goldfinch’. Check out the leaf shapes of both roses in the ‘Ghislaine de Feligonde’ members comment No. 86-363.

My rose Is very similar to Ghislaine.

It is not a reliable repeat bloomer for many. Mine reblooms on random years but that is only a few flowers. This is essentially a once blooming rose with a few bonus flowers in the autumn.

Maybe for You in Your situation, circumstances and climate that is the case, Palustris...
But this rose has the potential to have several flushes and even with some scattered flowers in between.
Maybe the way one prunes this rose has a big influence. Maybe remove a few older canes every, or every other year and stimulate new growth.

In my climate, May is the rainy season and it rains practically every day. From June to September, temperatures exceed 30 degrees with some thunderstorms, in October it often rains, while the dry period is generally in winter. The plant doesn't even emit a flower here and there.
The GdF from me generally blooms in the first week of June or at the end of May.

It may be my climate. My rose came from a neighbor's original planting from the 1920s. There is a photo of the rose with three young girls in 1924 which is less that a decade from its release into commerce in France. The plant came from Michael Walsh who received it from William Paul. So this plant has only been propagated a few times since its release into commerce by Guillot.

Years ago, I didn't realize it was recurrent for some, so I asked the owner of the house, the daughter of one of the girls in the photograph, if it rebloomed. She said she had never seen rebloom on this ancient plant growing freely over their front door.

Our houses are very close to the sea so we have a very late Spring and late Autumn. Maybe the late Spring diminishes the growing season. We tend to have a very dry July and August as weather patterns across the Eastern USA means that storms generally are north of us. So it seems climate could have a large effect.

This rose blooms continuously for me, right until late autumn... it has a big first flush then always some clusters of blooms repeating with another good flush in August/Sept.. further clusters until November..
I found that it needs to be a minimum 3 years in the ground to get into that rhythm... from a grafted bare root.. England, UK..

This rose Is very symilar to old blush cina. I don't see parent's in description
Reply #1 of 2 posted 14 AUG by HubertG
I believe that its parentage is not known.

Very similar habit, identical rose hips, similar flower that differs only in color even if similarity can be glimpsed in the closed bud, very faint and same fragrance in both, same powdery mildew problems, same problems in the rain, under the scorching sun and with frosts , same young twigs on the red ... there are many similarities so I think there is certainly a close parental closeness. If the parents are not known, a DNA analysis would be interesting ...

With this rose i have every year a problem with mildew
Reply #1 of 3 posted 22 JUL 20 by Patricia Routley
The main page says this rose is susceptible to mildew, but I suspect that may be only in some areas. (It does not mildew in my garden). You could try a little more water. In RESOURCES / GLOSSARY / MILDEW Graeme Stuart Thomas has written “Mildew is more often caused by dry soil and damp air than by soil deficiencies.”

Ok, thanks. I'll try.
Reply #3 of 3 posted 3 JUL by Gdisaz10
Even this year, despite the special care and attention, the rose presents the problem of powdery mildew and black spot. Numerous branches have dried up and I had to prune it drastically. Out of curiosity I tried to put another one in full sun, but alas it presents the same situation. The worst rose in the garden! As soon as the temperatures allow it, I will have it replaced with an Allister stella gray.
