ROSA BANKSIAE | 'Alba' Banksia Rose White
It is a scrambling shrubby vine growing vigorously to 6 m (20 ft) tall. Unlike most roses, it is practically thornless, though it may bear some prickles up to 5 mm long, particularly on stout, strong shoots. The leaves are evergreen, however they will fall during very cold weather. The flowers are small, 1.5-2.5 cm diameter, white. It is amongst the earliest flowering of all roses, usually appearing during september in the southern hemisphere, though cold weather can delay flowering. All Lady Banks' roses are said to smell of violets to varying degrees.
The rose is named after Lady Banks, the wife of the botanist Sir Joseph Banks
