ROSA BANKSIAE LUTEA
YELLOW BANKSIA ROSE
The Rosa banksiae lutea is from the Rosaceae family and originates from China. It is a vigorous climber with rich green foliage on nearly thorn-free slender branches that grow to a height of 2.5 – 3.5 metres when trained as climber.
It flowers with profuse amounts of lightly scented small double butter-yellow blooms that will weep like garlands over all shrubs in its path if allowed.
It is thought to be the hardiest of the Rosa banksiae although it is thought it may be an ancient hybrid with a Tea Rose.
This large plant can be grown as a mounding plant or as a climber or contained as hedge if pruned just after spring flowering. It is a miniature, double with yellow blooms that have a slight to very fragrance and in profusion. It flowers in late winter into spring and early summer. It blooms on new wood so prune it early.
It is frost, heat tolerant with low water requirements. It needs to grow in full sun for best results.
It is a great climber for arbors and arches.
