In the past years I have shared my beautiful yellow Rosa banksiae Lutea, better known as Lady Banks rose with you, and it is indeed gorgeous again this year, but to mix it up a bit I thought that instead of repeating myself I would introduce another Lady Banks rose...this one is a sister to the yellow variety and is called: Rosa banksiae Alba Plena, the white variety and she is a beauty too. Here she is draped over my greenhouse with a little cherub and a Hop vine to keep her company.
The individual flowers are quite small, but much larger than the yellow Lady Banks, to me they resemble little powder puffs. Like her relative this rose is once blooming and has no fragrance, but I love its charming, rambling, old fashion quality
I have a real love for garden statues and especially cherubs, this little guy has been in my garden long enough to gain a rich patina
Soft, pretty colors ~ perfect for these lovely spring days.
Wishing you a day full of roses.
Thank you for visiting.
