What to do with Gigantic Rose Bush?

12 years ago

Just moved into my new place and have an enormous rose bush and I don't know what kind it is or what to do with it. This big girl is about 15 feet tall and totally upright, it's not bushy at all, rather, it's more like a small tree and has (just a few)ginormous hips.

I've never seen it bloom, though I have a picture(from the realtor)that shows it blooming (pretty sad, really). The flowers are either dark pink or pinkish red.

I have no idea what kind of rose it is or what on earth I should do with it now that it's mine. I'd kind of like it a little more tame and bushy, rather than 15 feet tall and lanky.

Rose people - I need your help!
