Wild climbing rose... dainty clusters of small-petalled flowers in early summer... it needs a site where frost cannot affect it. It is named for the wife of the eminent botanist and explorer Sir Joseph Banks (1742-1820), and was brought from its native China toLondon in 1824.
Introduced in United Kingdom by Royal Horticulture Society in 1824 as 'R. banksiae lutea'.
