Lady Banks is a wonderful old climbing species rose (Rosa bankensa). It produces heavy boughs and cascades of yellow flowers in the Spring, and is a memorable and traffic stopping spectacle when in glorious full flower.
This rose grows large and is aggressive, so plant it out where you want quick cover on an arbor, fence line or shed. It is especially nice to use for these areas because it is nearly thornless.
The foliage grows dense and tight with sharp pointed lance shaped leaves of medium green. It blooms annually in the spring, with the bloom period lasting 4-6 weeks, depending on temperatures.
Individual blooms are small (about an inch across), but what they might like in size, they make up for in quantity and volume. This rose in full bloom, is just nothing short of breathtaking. The color is an even dark buttery yellow that does not fade with age. The flowers are very lightly fragrant.
Lady Banks needs time to mature to reach its full potential, so don't be heavy handed with pruning as it needs 2nd and 3rd year wood, and don't plan to put it in a small location and think you can keep it tamed with pruning. The rose will win every time.
Lady Banks was introduced from China by JD Park for the Hort Society of London in 1824, and has remained a popular favorite.
