I planted a White "Lady Banks" last year and trained it on a trellis. It had no thorns or blooms the first year and I began to think it had been mismarked. Perhaps it wasn't a rose. Well, low and behold. . . It now has a few, very few thorns and the beginnings of a few buds. Is this normal to be so slow in producing? should I do anything else for it? The plant structure and leaves are very good. It looks very healthy.

White Lady Banks can be slow to start but once it gets going it becomes quite vigourous. Just care for it the way you would for another shrub rose such as once fertilizing in the spring. This rose does smell of violets.
