Pruning. — These should not be pruned for the first three years. The main shoots and laterals should be spread out and nailed to the walls, as it is from these that the blooms are produced. This section is only useful in very favoured localities- useless in the North of Ireland and Scotland. Prune in April.

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.
