Hi all,
My Banks rose is in bloom- at least, one of the roses here is a Banks rose, I don't know what the other one is, it came mixed in the same pot with the Banks.

My little automatic camera won't do much better than this.

That looks so beautiful and romantic! What I can see of the rest of your garden is equally gorgeous. I do hope you'll be posting more pictures.

R. fortuniana is often mistaken for R. banksia, and I once bought R. fortuniana even though it was labeled R. banksia. If you look at fortuniana at HMFR you might be able to determine if that's the rose you have in addition to banksia. I actually like fortuniana better, but to have both would be neat.

Yeah, Supaflyz, it looks AMAZING. And like Ingrid said, " it looks so beautiful and romantic!"

Thanks, Renee!! :)

Does all of THAT come from that little container!!?? :)

Wow!!

Does it have wonderful perfume that wafts everywhere? - she asked enviously. LOL

Carol- it smells just divine. I open the four windows of the living room and just breathe it in.

Ingrid, I think it might be fortuniana but HMF says it is nearly thornless, and this little white rose is a terror.

Thanks for your kind words. I wish my camera would do better.

I'll try to get a photo of the banks roses down the street covering my neighbor's post fence. He has the prettiest house on the block, and the yard is filled with white banks and Iceberg roses.

Gorgeous Renee! Hmmm, if it's a very thorny terror, that's doubly confusing. Both Fortuniana and Rosa Banksiae are supposed to be "thornless". Usually the yellow version of Rosa Banksiae is predominantly shown, but the white version is especially popular in England. There is a very thorny version of white Rosa Banksiae but it is in single petal formation, not the double form, so maybe you got the thorny sport strain, lol!

Will this rose thrive in a large pot?

So gorgeous!!

If this reblooms, it looks and sounds like a lady banks hybrid I grow called 'Purezza'. From what I can see, those are the same leaves :) And yes, she has enough thorns to snare a few folks!

Here is a link that might be useful: Purezza on HMF

Georgia Dougherty,

I don't know if this helps, but my Purezza is pretty rampant in my garden. She looks very pretty pruned smaller, and she blooms fine smaller, but you'd have to root prune (annually?) to keep her in any pot.
