WANTED: Wanted: rosa banksiae lutescens

I'm looking for a Puget Sound source for the above rose (a/k/a the Lady Banks rose) for my sister, whose newly married surname is "Banks". I checked Molbaks and did a general Google search without success. Any ideas?

I posted this on the "other" side of this forum, too. I don't care if I can get a good sized plant or just a few sticks. Just want to present my dear sis with a way to "grow" with her family!

Thanks so much!

RE: WANTED: Wanted: rosa banksiae lutescens

I saw a Rosa banksia at Swanson's Nursery in Seattle. The one I saw was the white one, but I didn't notice if it was the single or double. They might have the yellow one, but I wasn't looking for roses, so I can't say for sure. If you don't care if you get the white or yellow, I got some cuttings of the single white form from a lady in Texas, and a couple of them are growing. I specifically asked for cuttings of one that is known to be fragrant, since the fragrance is variable in seed-grown plants. Call Swanson's to see if they still have one, or can get one. If you can't find one anywhere else, I can give you one of my cuttings after they've rooted and grown some more. Send me an e-mail at

Chortling with glee,
