Rosa banksiae ( Normalis Banks Rose )

If you are a lover of roses, but are turned off by the work required to maintain your average rose, the lady banks rose may be just what you are looking for. Having little to no pest or disease problems, this glossy-foliaged rose is literally covered with single white fragrant flowers in spring and has thorns. Heavenly trained over arbors or trellises, this vine makes a wonderful large-scale ground cover too. Prune only spent wood on this rose.
