Yellow Lady BanksTM Chinese Climbing Rose – 4″ Pot – Fragrant Flowers

A vigorous climber with rich-green foliage on thornless slender branches. Miniature, double yellow blooms have a slight fragrance. Heavy and prolific spring display. Evergreen in milder climates. A fine climber for arbors. Rosa banksiae, common names Lady Banks’ Rose, Tombstone Roses or just Banks’ rose, is a species of flowering plant in the rose family, native to central and western China, in the provinces of Gansu, Guizhou, Henan, Hubei, Jiangsu, Sichuan and Yunnan, at altitudes of 500-2,200 m (1,640-7,218 ft). The rose is named after Lady Banks, the wife of the botanist Sir Joseph Banks (after whom the Banks Peninsula is named). R. banksiae has likely been grown in the gardens of China for hundreds of years. The species was introduced to Europe by William Kerr, who had been sent on a plant-hunting expedition by Sir Joseph Banks. He bought the first Lady Banks’ Rose, subsequently named the white Lady Banks (R. banksiae var. banksiae) from the famous Fa Tee nursery in 1807. According to Guinness, the world’s largest rosebush, Lady Banks’ Rose, was planted in Tombstone, Arizona, in 1885 and still flourishes today in the city’s sunny climate. This rose bush now covers 8,000 square feet (740 m2) of the roof on an inn, and has a 12-foot (3.7 m) circumference trunk.
