Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’ (yellow Banksian rose) is a large and vigorous, early flowering, thornless semi-evergreen rambler with clusters of pale yellow, rosette-like double flowers. This climber needs room to spread and is ideally trained on a sheltered wall in full sun with moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil. If you’d prefer clusters of double, white, scented flowers there is another form Rosa banksiae alba plena.
