The yellow Lady Banks rose has lots of flowers but very little fragrance. It will grow 15-20' high and 8-10' wide. If you keep it pruned away from your tree it won't cause problems. Unpruned, it may very well attach itself to your tree. Unlike the yellow, the white Lady Banks rose has both fragrance and thorns. It will grow 12-20' high and 8-12' wide. I would plant only two or three Lady Banks roses and wait for them to fill in.
