The Lady Banks Rose is a large climbing evergreen rose that can grow 20 feet or more if properly supported. It has glossy green leaves on stems with no thorns and white or pale yellow flowers that have little to no smell. It should be planted in areas that get plenty of sun and has well-drained soil. Weekly watering is usually enough, make sure the soil is damp but not saturated. Once flowering has ended make sure to prune the Lady Banks Rose, clipping right above where the leaf joins with the stem.
The Lady Banks Rose was named after the wife of botanist Sir Joseph Banks who sent William Kerr on an expedition to find plants around 1824 in which the rose was found in Asia and brought back to Europe.
