Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' (Lady Bank's Yellow Rose) - This thornless climbing wild rose reliably produces in spring 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 a 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.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Rosa banksiae 'Lutea'.
