This stately beauty lends a distinctly romantic, old-world charm to gardens wherever it is planted, perhaps because it has been in cultivation for almost 200 years! Lady Banks rose can be grown as a ground cover or kept pruned as a hedge, but we think that it looks best when given some support and trained as a graceful vine that grows quickly and easily over fences, arches, arbors and trellises. Specimens can be extraordinarily long-lived, forming thick, woody trunks with age. In fact, one of the oldest and largest known specimens in the world is growing nearby in Tombstone, AZ, giving rise to this plant’s other common name; Tombstone rose. Yellow Lady Banks rose is thornless, nearly evergreen, cold hardy and sun-loving, with lightly fragrant, creamy yellow springtime flowers that bloom abundantly in clusters.
