Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' / Yellow Banksia rose
This is a vigourous, semi-evergreen almost thornless rose, suitable for a sunny wall or fence. Clusters of small, pale yellow flowers appear in late spring or early summer. Ideal if you want to cover a large area, or to cover an unsightly surface. Best in full sun or semi-shade in fertile, well-drained soil. Put some compost or leaf mould around the base every year, and cut back soon after flowering so that you will have plenty of flowers the following year. It will need something to hold onto, so if on a wall make sure you have a trellis or wires for it to hold onto. This plant requires space, as it can grow to a height of up to 10 metres with a spead of 3-4 metres. Most of the leaves stay on the plant for most of the year, but it can lose some leaves in cold spells. Irish-grown plants 60-80cm tall in a 3 litre container.
