I got this years ago and just love the spring color. It will rebloom a bit throughout the growing season. However, I don't (obviously) keep it under control. What is it, and how bad will it get in 7B. (and does anyone want a whole bunch of it!?) Thanks!

A closer photo would help but it might be a Lady Bank's Rose (Rosa banksiae).

No - not a rose. I'll get a close-up later. Thanks, though.

It looks like it could be,


It's not native, of course, but an old pass-along plant found in the yards of many old houses in the southeast.

Like Daisy said, close-ups of the leaves and flowers would help to confirm the identity. Smiling

Yes - kerria. Thanks. How do you get rid of it? (and why do garden shops sell it to unsuspecting folks!?)

Lot's of digging in my case. It had suckered like crazy when I moved here. Afterwards be vigilant and pull the shoots out as they emerge.
