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.

I think the hardiness should be "6b and warmer" rather than "6b through 9b".

When do not have specific hardiness information we assign a default range.

I have two comments about this rose.

One, it is a house swallower. Left unchecked in a warm climate, this rose will cover an entire house in short order. It seems to have no real size constraints. I bet it could cover an acre in time. Or more!

Two, in San Francisco, this will show some rebloom in autumn if you prune it right after flowering in the spring. It doesn't do it every year and the second flowering is very light, but it does rebloom in some circumstances in a cool, mild climate like San Francisco.

I have a yellow Lady Banks Rose. How do I can for it. It has new growth coming out everywhere. Is it a climber? It only bloomed a few months ago. Is once normal for this plant? I got it last year at a local store. Thanks Meg

Yes, it is once-flowering and grows rankly. Take a look at the pictures!
