Rosa banksiae banksiae

This is the double white of what is sometimes called Lady Bank's rose; this vigorous rambler was introduced from China by J Park prior to 1824 for the Horticultural Society of London. The small fragrant white flowers appear in April and May so it needs a sheltered site, not hardy in the north of the UK it's completely thorn less and flowers best on three year old wood so go easy with the pruning! It's also worth mentioning it does not suffer from Black spot or Rust like other roses and the stems and leaves alone make it worth growing.
