Why won't my roses bloom?

My Father had 25 beautiful roses and I didn't want to leave them when we sold the house. January certainly wasn't the time to dig them up, I planted them in big pots in the basement and planted them out in the Spring. 2 survived and look healthy, but, in 3 years, they haven't bloomed. Live in zone 6 and they are in the sunniest part of the yard. Rose type unknown. What can I do? Thanks, Cyndy

Did the roses possibly die back and resprout from below the graft union? If so, they would not be the original rose variety, and may only bloom on second year wood or not at all. If the plants are healthy in appearance otherwise and getting full sun, this would be the most likely cause of failure to bloom.
