    It's a Rose, if it's been planted by a trellis, probably a climber

    Thanks for your help.

    I suspected it was a rose but it hasn’t budded this summer at all. I actually put the trellis up because it looked for messy before but I am just starting out in gardening so not really sure what I’m doing

    I'm not much of a Rose grower but we have members who are so I'm sure you'll get some help

    @Marlorena gives lots of good advice about roses ... hopefully she’ll see this and pop in to help.

    I don't grow them either, but many of them need a fair bit of food and water to do well. 

    If it's been neglected, or has got dried out, or been incorrectly pruned, that may well be part of the problem  :)

    ...have you or anyone else there been cutting that rose back to the ground, or very low, every year or this year?... all those green stems look  young and fairly recent... I do not see any mature growth...
