It doesn't appear that this page is linked with another page for white lady banks.

Yes. It does appear that 'White Lady Banks' should be merged with Rosa banksiae Aiton.
Jedmar, can you see anything against merging the two? I am a little wary when it comes to the species. I note there are things like 'Rosa banksia 'Double White' and Rosa banksiae 'Double White' in the separate files.

Thanks Jonathan. I've merged the 'White Lady Banks' file into the R. Banksiae Aiton file. I was a bit concerned about the 1895, and in particular the 1984 references, but I think it is OK.

Monrovia lists Banksia Alba as hardy to zone 6. Any zone pushers want to weigh in on how cold hardy this is? I'm thinking about trying it on the south side of our home in zone 6b.

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!
