The Banksian rose, named after the wife of Sir Joseph Banks, the famous director of RHS Kew Gardens. This lovely semi evergreen climbing rose which can achieve 7 metres or more under the right conditions has the prettiest small rosette like white flowers which come out from late spring and on into early summer with a most gorgeous delicate violet scent to them.
Rosa banksiae is noted for its near thornless stems and will need tying into wires or other support. It makes a superb sight when used to climb on the posts of arbors etc, being almost thornless means no harm will come to anyone brushing past.
