The true wild type of Banksian rose, forming a strong growing semi-evergreen climber with virtually NO thorns, bearing masses of highly fragrant small cream flowers in early summer, before most other roses, over attractive dainty foliage with narrow leaflets. Flowers are borne in clusters, have conspicuously notched petals and are scented of violets. For a warm sheltered wall. This has grown very strongly for me and is now up into a sycamore, well away from any shelter, yet still flowers equally strongly. This can either be grown very large or kept really quite small.
