Roses do not bloom
"My rose bush grows every summer but does not bloom. I fertilize it, cut back in the fall & water it regularly. I treat it for aphids that like to munch on it. Still no flower grow or bloom. Any suggestions?"

"Hi
My guess is that your original rose is gone. I bet this rose was a grafted hybrid tea or floribunda. These are actually flowering tops grafted onto a wild rootstock for hardiness. If the top of the plant dies during the winter, often the root stock will send up shoots that never bloom. I'd dig it, toss it, and plant a non-grafted variety such as a rugosa rose. They are very hardy in your region."
