The Lady Banks Rose

Guest Author - Charity Armstrong

While visiting with a neighbor recently, we discussed her beautiful and show stopping Lady Banks Rose. Winter weather has arrived, and there is no better time to envision and contemplate the additions you'll make to your rose bed come spring. For a carefree rose that puts on a stunning spring show, consider adding a Lady Banks rose to your garden.

The Lady Banks rose is disease resistant, performs well without being sprayed and is the perfect plant if you need to fill a large space. Lady Banks can get up to 20 feet tall and 12 feet wide. It's large size can make finding the right garden spot a chore, however, it might also be just what you've been looking for to fill that empty spot in your garden.

There are many uses for the Lady Banks rose. You could plant it at the base of tree receiving full sun, and train Lady Banks up through the base of the tree. The Lady Banks rose can also be used to cover the side of a garage or shed. If you have a large arbor to fill or a gap in your rose bed the Lady Banks rose will happily fill the space.

Lady Banks rose is reliable and easy to care for, but it will only bloom once each year in the spring. This climbing rose comes in both yellow and white. The yellow variety is considerably hardier and less disease prone. Lady Banks is thornless which makes training it much easier. In many areas it maintains it's leaves for most of the year, which is always a bonus in the winter garden.

Your Lady Banks rose will perform well provided you give it lots of growing space and full sun. This rose does have a tendency to get a little wild and bushy so don't attempt to squeeze it into a restricted space. Though the Lady Banks rose is easy to grow, you still need to ensure you plant this rose in full sun. Planting your Lady Banks rose in an area with less than full sun will turn this easy to grow rose into a difficult plant.

The Lady Banks rose has been around since the early 1800s, with a spring blooming show that never disappoints. Lady Banks, a rose gardener's favorite, is fairly easy to find at most nurseries or garden centers. Once the warm weather arrives consider adding one of these spring beauties to your garden.
