Hi. I have a yellow lady banks that hasn't started to produce leaves or flowers just yet and live in Va. I can't remember last year when it started growing but worried it may be dead. I have had for about 3 years and understand that they grow on old wood ao haven't pruned at all. How can I tell if it's going to come back or when should I pull the plug ?

Thanks
Wendy

I would say, don't give up on your Lady Banks Yellow (Rosa banksiae f. lutea) just yet. Perhaps it's just a little late in leafing out due to the weird weather patterns this year, I think a lot of plants may be confused due to spring arriving late in some areas. Smiling

Thanks. Hoping that's the case. It doesn't seem brittle in majority of the stems so I suppose all hope isn't lost yet.

Hurray! If the stems aren't brittle, I think it's probably just a little slow waking up! Thumbs up

Spring came about 3 weeks later than usual here in TN. And the winter and spring temps were erratic. I've had some things damaged and a few die that I never had problems with before. Hope your Lady Banks comes on out.
