I planted about 8 Floribundas about 3 years ago. All were beautiful and flourished. Last year one would not grow. It would start but then the stub would wither and fall off. In the fall I took a bag of rose soil and buried it good to protect it for the winter. Husband thought I needed to dig it up and throw it out. It was dead he said. But I didn't give up hope. This spring a small shoot appeared about 6" from the main stalk. I waited until it was about 4" tall and discovered the rose was coming back to life. Once it started it didn't stop. It is now bigger than all the others. It just will not bloom. Its been fertilized, mulched and watered. I tried snipping the end of the branches like if there were blooms there. All that did was to increase the thickness of the branches and add more to the plant. It was spindly to start but now its showing some rugged growth. Has anyone had this happen before? Any suggestions?
