Unlike most other plants in your garden that bear flowers on newly grown shoots, the flowers of the Lady Banks' rose grow on old branches. This is the reason why you should never prune the plant before spring, which is the flowering season for the plant. Once the plant has flowered in spring for 4 weeks or so, you can safely prune the plant to allow new shoots to develop. The plant has a tendency to spread its branches far and wide, and so it is necessary that you prune it often to keep it in shape and confine it to the area within which you want it to grow. Remember that pruning the Lady Banks' rose is essential for its growth and well-being.
