Lady Banks' rose is a small shrub endemic to the Orient.

The plant grows to a height of 6 meters; Lady Banks' rose generally blooms in April-May. Growing along streams, roadsides, and hillside shrubs, this is a tenacious plant that can survive on plateaus.

The greatest feature of Lady Banks' rose is its charming fragrance. The scent of Lady Banks' rose is nice and intense. If I were to describe it in words, the scent would be like a sweeter rose scent. The taste is as sweet as honey, like the flower sauce boiled with rose petals, very sweet.

Many roses have to be up close to smell the scent, but the scent of woodsy flowers can travel far away and can be smelled in the surrounding air.

Lady Banks rose care is much easier than other cultivated roses. They don’t require the typical fertilizing or pruning required by other roses and rarely succumb to disease. Deep watering is not necessary to stimulate foliage and flower growth.

Over time, the Lady Banks climbing rose forms a strong tree-like trunk. It does take time to become established and may not bloom for the first year or two. In hot climates and during dry spells, regular supplemental watering may be necessary.

Lady Banks roses require little training. They are fast growing vines and, in many cases, need vigorous pruning to keep them in the desired space. Lady Banks only blooms in the spring on old wood. In order not to inhibit flower production the following spring , they should only be pruned immediately after blooming up to the beginning of July .
