  Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' - Lady Bank's Yellow Rose (1824)
 
Rosa banksiae Lutea
Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' was planted at San Marcos Growers garden.
 
This thornless climbing wild rose reliably produces copious amounts of lightly scented small double butter-yellow blooms that will drape like blankets and garlands over all shrubs or buildings in its path. It was officially introduced in 1824 from China by John Parks but apparently had been observed growing in a Botanic Garden in Calcutta prior to this. Thought to be the hardiest of the R. banksiae although some think it may be an ancient hybrid with a Tea Rose. This large plant can be grown as a large mounding plant, as a climber or contained as hedge if pruned just after spring bloom. A large specimen of this rose can be seen in our nursery clambering up a blue gum along our back fence. Zones 4-10.
