A splendid and vigorous climber, award-winning Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' (Lady Banks' Rose) is a large, early flowering, semi-evergreen rambler with a profusion of small, multi-petaled, pale yellow, double flowers, 3/4 in. wide (2 cm), in spring. Held in clusters, the lightly scented blooms are perfectly displayed on the thorn-less, slender branches which are clad with a rich green foliage of small, smooth-edged leaves. 'Lutea' is the most popular and the most floriferous of the banksia roses and is regarded as one of the best roses for dry gardens. It is evergreen in mild climates.
Quick Facts from the grower
For best flowering, apply a balanced fertilizer and mulch in late winter or early spring. Protect from frost and cold drying winds. Any pruning carried out on this early-flowering, semi-evergreen rambler should be done immediately after flowering is finished in the spring. Propagate by hardwood cuttings in fall or by chip budding in summer.
