Be careful what you wish for!

Our Lady Banks thrives no matter the lousy conditions, from frozen water from a City-side leak to failed irrigation system/no watering. And she will take over your house, so be careful what you wish for/where you plant. Ours is four years old, 10 ft high growing on a column on our front porch, and we give her a deep haircut at least three times a year to get rid of her 20 foot (or longer) strands that sneak into every roof or other crevice. Yes, absolutely stunning for three weeks in April, but the rest of the time we're chasing incredible growth. Sadly, I can feel an end coming; she's a lot of trouble to keep confined. Think big if you plant!

Takes a beating and comes back bigger

I bought our Lady Banks roses 4 and 6 years ago because I heard they could deal with the terrible wind we sometimes have here. And I am pleased. Most large leafy evergreens are beaten to death over the winter and don't recover until summer. Lady Banks just needs a good pruning and she comes right back with cascades of small yellow blossoms. The branches need to be pruned before the petals fall off (They last about a month.) or you have a huge mess of petals to deal with, They need to be pruned, and hard, anyway because they will take over the yard otherwise. You could form a 30-foot diameter umbrella if you prune them just right. I've seen it done. Or you could fill a 30-foot area with an impenetrable tangle of vines, I've seen that, too. This plant can be a huge boon or a huge problem, but its toughness makes it invaluable in some situations.

So far so good

I am pleased so far. Just received within the last month. It's planted, seems happy and had bloomed. It is still only about 2 feet tall, I pray ahe grows into the beautiful canopy in the pictures. Time will tell.

Lady Banks Arrives Healthy

Lady Banks arrived looking healthy. It has little buds now. In the future, I am sure your buyers would appreaciate a paper with instructions on how to plant it and how to feed the plants to keep them thriving,

Fresh Start

Lady Banks and other species roses have always been my real favorites. Hybrid Teas and Floribundas are rewarding, but they can be such prima donnas. I have also learned to love own-root roses after years of planting budded roses and having to cope with suckers and less vigorous new canes. I really love rugosas, and I'm looking also for Austrian Copper and will also try old garden roses when I find the right spaces. In California I had a Lady Banks that started as a mere twig and in just ten years took over the trellis and climbed a total of maybe 35-40 feet into the cotoneaster trees. Now I have Lady Banks again and hope she'll envelope the carport over the next few years.
