Banks Alba et Lutea. — Rosiers sarmenteux, sans épines, très connus sous le nom de Rosiers Banks. Importé de Chine en Europe, vers 1807, fleurs en panicules blanc pur, petite, très odorante, mais non remontantes, jolies et trop peu connues dans le Nord Africain, où cependant la végétation des Rosiers Banks, est plus belle et plus vigoureuse que dans le Centre et le Nord de la France. Rosier des pays chauds. Comme aspect, les rosiers Banks diffèrent des autres rosiers : feuillage fin, bois poli, sans épines. La variété B. Lutea est la variété à fleur jaune et a les mêmes mérites que la variété à fleur blanche. Sous notre climat il est à recommender pour garnir des tonnelles, pignons de maisons, colonnes, etc., mêlé aux autros variétés grimpantes remontantes, comme Maréchal Niel ou Reine Marie Henriette. Se multiplie difficilement de boutures, facilement de marcottes, ou greffé sur d'au très sujets. La marcotte est à notre connaissance le système le plus employé en Europe.

A distinct species, introduced from China. Quite a feature and glory of the Riviera. None who have only seen them venturing up a southern wall in England, can imagine their vigour, or the growth they make here under more favourable circumstances. They like to take possession of rows of trees or buildings forming a sort of coronet on the top, from which depend long shoots covered with innumerable flowers; in the case of the double yellow sort, one is reminded of the "shower of gold" at a display of fireworks. We have four varieties. [...]
(3) Very double buff-yellow, introduced by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1824, from China, a most profuse bloomer.

Rosa Banksiae...In 1827 the double yellow is for the first time figured, and by Lindley in the volume of the Botanical Register (Plate 1105), with the observation that the first indication of its existence is to be found in a note (overlooked when elaborating the Monograph) in Roxburgh's Hortus Bengalensis, where under the name of R. inermis both the double white and double yellow are alluded to with their Chinese names, as they were also in the Roxburghian manuscripts, preserved in the Banksian library. It was on discovering this, after the publication of the Monograph of Roses, that the Royal Horticultural Society, of which Lindley was secretary, directed Mr. John Damper Parks (who was being sent to China in 1823 by the Society) to obtain the yellow form, which he did, returning with it in 1824. Dr. Lindley describes it as, on the whole, a more desirable plant than the white variety, being more hardy, flowering more freely, and having deeper green leaves, but adds that it is less fragrant. The only other early notice of this plant is by Dr. Abel in his narrative of his travels in China, to which country he went as physician to Lord Macartney's embassy. Abel mentions it as R. Banksiana.
