Image of Banksia Rose

Not a true climber but a scrambling shrub growing to 5 or 6m in height, the Banksia Rose can be an excellent plant for the Cottage Garden with masses of flowers produced over spring. It is reasonably drought tolerant once established and white and double yellow flower varieties are available. This plant generally only needs pruning every few years after flowering or when its vigour needs controlling.
