Sizing guide

The toughest of all climbing roses. Smothered in snowy frilled blooms in spring. Almost thornless and extremely drought tolerant.

Banksia Rose White Alba is a variety of climbing rose that is prized for its large, fragrant, white flowers. Its botanical name is Rosa banksiae 'Alba'. This plant is a member of the Rosaceae family and is native to China.

A large rambling type, Banksia Roses are ideal for covering a fence or bare wall, and will quickly smother the area with their long arching canes. Banksia Roses are largely disease resistant, very hardy and have almost thornless stems making them very easy to handle and prune. If required, prune in late Summer after the main flush of flowers is over; these plants flower on last season’s wood so pruning in Winter will mean an absence of flowers for the following season. It has glossy, dark green leaves and produces clusters of small, double or single, white flowers in the spring. These flowers have a sweet, delicate fragrance and are followed by small, yellowish-green hips in the fall.
Likes a well drained soil and prefers a full sun to part shade position.

Will benefit from feeding twice per year with a complete plant food and liquid fertiliser.
