About Yellow Lady Banks Rose

Yellow Lady Banks Roses are vigorous climbers consisting of medium to light green foliage, thornless branches capable of spreading over 20 feet in length! Miniature yellow double blooms adorn the plant in the spring and early summer providing a slight fragrance. Lady Banks Rose is extremely easy to grow which is one of the main selling points for gardeners who purchase it. Since it is a vine, they are usually found sprawling across patios and entryways or up/over trellises and pergolas. If you would like you could even use it as a container plant or as a ground cover along banks to help alleviate erosion.

Yellow Lady Banks Rose Care  

Sunlight Requirements

The Lady Banks thrives under full sun but will also tolerate partial shade conditions without much of a fuss. It will flower in both, but the best and healthiest blooms will be produced when exposed to 6 – 8 hours of uninterrupted sunlight daily. In addition to the blooms, the foliage will also grow to become much dense when full sun exposure is provided.

Is Yellow Lady Banks Rose cold hardy?

Cold hardy from USDA zones 9 – 11 as an evergreen and capable of surviving the winters of USDA zones 6 – 8 as well. In colder climates your Lady Banks will act as a deciduous plant and lose its leaves during the winter.

Climbing Yellow Rose Watering, Spacing and more!

This vine is highly adaptable and will grow in a variety of conditions. Rich, well-drained soil that remains moist is ideal for growth, but it will also withstand drought like conditions once established. Be sure that your soil is also rich in organic material. Otherwise, it is not picky about soil types.

Lady Banks blooms on old wood, so be careful not to over-prune the older branches. You’ll be busy enough trying to contain the size of this rose – it is not meant for small spaces and can easily grow to 30 feet or more, quickly swallowing all that stands in its way. Pruning back fully may be detrimental to the life of your plant. Around February, before the growing season starts, prune if you please.

*The Yellow Lady Banks Rose (Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’) is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline (discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant. *

    The rose arrived within a few days and was in perfect condition, very healthy and full. I couldn’t be happier with the purchase!

    Plants arrived quickly and in beautiful shape. They package the plants so well for shipment. I watched as the FedEx lady juggled the boxes and then dropped them on my porch, but the plants were packed so well that there was minimal damage, if any.

    I was thrilled to receive my rose and find it was BLOOMING. It was also bigger than I expected. That’s a first for me for a mail order plant!

    Lady Banks Rose arrived very fast and in great shape. I was really impressed with the shipping speed and the quality of the plant.

    Built a new house and had to leave my large 20 year old Lady Banks rose behind. It was a fabulous sprawling thornless and carefree (except required some pruning) rose. It bloomed profusely once in the spring. I ordered a new Lady Banks rose from “Plants By Mail” for my new house. The rose shipped quickly to my 9B zone and arrived in excellent condition. I planted it immediately and can already see a few buds developing. Hadn’t expected any blooms this year, since this rose came pruned and it generally blooms on last years canes. The root ball was well developed for the pot size. If you have a sunny spot and a structure or fence for a rose to crawl along, this would be an excellent choice. The leaves are traditionally small and more delicate than the average rose. If I had more room, I would buy a second one.
