Lady Banks rose
When we moved here in 1993, the back yard was a sad attempt at a Bermuda grass lawn, under shady trees. After a few years of replacing dead sod, I changed my plan. When a piece of grass died, I would dig it up and replace it with either a paver or a plant. Now there is no grass in my back yard and lots of lovely plants with pavers around them.
One of the first plants was this Lady Banks rose, a scentless climber that blooms once a year, in the Spring. In 15 years it has gotten huge and covers all of my arches and trellises. The March bloom is spectacular and gets bigger every year.
