This plant has never bloomed. It lived in a shady place til a tree was removed recently. Since, it's in partial shade and has gotten bigger and is looking healthier. It does have tiny thorns. Thanks in advance.

I don't think it's a rose. Maybe JerseyGuy will know.

Thanks for the suggestions...can't find anything like it. This plant is at least 5 yrs old so it isn't a viburnum and the leaves aren't that of a smilax. The stem is very woody and a bit twisted...I guess we'll wait to see if it blooms
Thanks again
