in desperate need of reviving my rose plant!!!
I am a complete amateur. We've had this rose bush for years, it has survived hanging by a thread thankfully, with hope for it growing to its full potential.
I have no idea how to prune. I used to trim the dead parts off it, but after a while I started to neglect it. I also used to feed it an asprin mixture (one asprin tablet, 1 tsp vinegar, one gallon of water) every three weeks and that made it relatively healthy, with very fragrant blooms. Now the roses are few and far between and not very healthy.
AND i am unsure as to what exactly is this rose. Can anyone ID it?
Quite a few pictures of its condition (if there are too many pictures, I'll take some down, just let me know):
And then there are some weird, alienish, white, creepy things growing on the bottom of some branches:

I know... it's horrible... but at least there was one nice bud (waiting unknowingly for its demise)
