Rosa banksiae 'Alba plena'

After hundreds of years (at least) in Chinese gardens, the first Lady Banks White Climbing Rose, which was white like this one, was brought to England by botonist Sir Joseph Banks, who named it for his wife. Subsequently, yellow varieties were found and further developed (see next entry). This 'Alba Plena' (white) cultivar is a vigorous climber that is covered with miniature white double blossoms in spring. Grows best in full sun. Slight fragrance; some thorns. Disease resistant and easy to care for, although long canes need support. Site this big, billowing climber where it can grow freely and be appreciated from afar. *Deer Heavily Browse*
