The Q&A Archives: Supplier of Bank;s Yellow Rose

Question: I have 60 feet or more or cinder block wall I want to cover with trellis and grow your Rosa bankslae 'Lutea'. The wall receives full sun and will be serviced by an automatic timed water sprinkler system or drip system, which ever is required. I live in zone 8 at 5100 feet with little snow, very little frost. Where is a source and when is a good time to plant them in this area?

Answer: The National Gardening Association answers gardening questions for Monrovia, but we do not have access to their retailer information. You can go to Monrovia?s website and click on Locating Our Plants and then input your zipcode. It will provide you with a list of retailers in your area. You can ask one to special order the rose for you. However, not all plants are available in all regions throughout the year. As for when to plant, I'd wait for the heat to abate as it's too stressful for root systems to establish now. Plant in late summer/early fall and be prepared to protect against any unseasonable frosts. Or wait until next year and plant in late winter/early spring. Good luck!
