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.
Just like Ornamental Catmint, this plant is rated as 'rarely damaged' by the Rutgers University. It is commonly used for the purpose of gardening. It grows well in bright sunlight, and flowering starts in the month of June. The hardiness zones from 3 - 9 are suitable for growing this plant.
The cheerful, sunny appearance of the yellow roses brings a smile to many a lip. Yellow roses symbolize unbridled and genuine friendship. Free from inhibitions, the sender of this rose assures that affection comes straight from the core of his heart, sans restrictions. An ideal symbol of true friendship, this rose also expresses joy and delight without any negative intonations. Platonic love is also expressed through these yellow blossoms.
They love slightly acidic soil conditions and require fertilizers to grow. During early spring time, you need to feed a balanced fertilizer to your plants weekly. You should stop feeding your plants about 6 weeks before the first frost. During winter, you need to protect the rose plants from winter damage. This can be done by cutting about 30 to 36 inches of the tall canes and tying the tips together. Clear off any dead leaves, stems, around the plant. You should till about 12 inches of soil around the center of the plant. Then cover the soil mounds with straw, leaves, etc. Mulch about 15 to 18 inches of the soil mound. After winter passes, you can remove the mulch and soil from around the plant base. Leave only about 2 inches of mulch to make sure water is retained around the plant during summer, and prevent weed growth.
