Hi everybodyreading !
I plan to get a rosa banksiae banksiae grow in a knotted curlywillowtree (hence salix tortuosa/babylonica) -which should be allright bùt : it faces north/northwest!
So what do y' all think , is this feasable either way or other?
Thanks for your answers !!

The description page gives the average diameter as being 5". I wonder if that can be correct? A French reference says the diameter is 2.5cm, which is just under 1".

It would seem a "." was missed when entering the bloom size. ".5" " rather than 5".

I wondered if that could be what happened, but it's been a little while since I saw a Banksia bloom up close, so couldn't remember if the blooms were that small.

I was pretty sure 5" was much too big, though!

Bank's roses are the lead article in the Dave's Garden online post for May 10, 2010. Comments include reports of light purple (Texas) and pink (Florida) flowers. Would someone who knows more please look into this? The Florida grower has white flowers as well. The Texan? I would love to know more about this.
Thank you very much to each person who has something to add.
