Special Attributes

The Lady Banks is an old-fashioned climbing or large shrub rose with arching branches that become literally covered in spring with abundant clusters of yellow miniature blossoms that have a very subtle, pleasing scent. The prolific flowering creates a lovely springtime display. Can be grown as a shrub which forms a very large mound or is a vigorous climber with thornless branches perfect for climbing and covering fences, arbors, and many other structures. When quickly established, Lady Banks Rose is one of the more drought-tolerant and disease-resistant rose species.

Landscape & Garden Uses

The Lady Banks Rose can be grown as a larger mounding shrub or a climber. It is vigorous and grows quite large so don't consider growing it in a container. Simply put, this rose is gorgeous, but needs its space. A fine addition to cottage gardens, yellow theme gardens and as a background in rose gardens.

As a Shrub

Growing in a huge mound 10 to 12 feet tall and 10 to 30 feet or more wide depending on pruning, Lady Banks Rose is ideal for use as a specimen or a natural hedge or privacy screen in landscape borders that provide it room to grow. We like to plant it along a fence line, sunny or partially shaded woodland border or on large slopes, and just let it grow naturally. 

As a Climber

As a climber the Lady Banks Rose can achieve heights of 30 feet or more, with support. It is ideal for use as a climber to grow along a sturdy fence or to cover large arbors and other structures. If planted too closely to the front porch it's possible it might take over your entire house...a slightly overwhelming prospect that is tempered only by the breathtaking display of flowers dripping from the soft, green branches. This could be a desirable attribute if you have a large, unsightly old shed or other structure you want to cover. If you don't mind training or pruning it, Lady Banks a great rose for growing up large columns or porch posts in home foundation plantings. Just know that you'll be doing a considerable amount of pruning. Also keep in mind that it blooms on old wood (last years growth), so be careful not to over-prune the older branches.

Cultural Preferences

The Lady Banks Rose is exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average or above average fertility and full sun to part shade. As with all other roses, morning sun is a must to dry dew from the leaves but some afternoon shade or filtered sun is okay. Flowering will be best if the plant receives at least 6 hours of direct sun during the day.  Has very good drought tolerance and disease resistance. We think this rose is more beautiful when allowed space to grow naturally, with little if any pruning. That said, she responds well to pruning. With regular pruning a Lady Banks Rose can be kept full and bushy. 

Caution:  This rose blooms on old wood so be careful not to over-prune the older branches until after the spring bloom.
