I am trying to trace a very small-flowered climbing rose. I bought a cutting of a pale yellow one at a village fete and was told it was called a Scottish Rose, but this name does not appear to be listed anywhere. It had tiny little flowers, which looked like double primroses, and tiny little leaves. Sadly, it died and I haven't been able to find another. I have seen other small-flowered pink climbers recently at Wollerton Old Hall garden and (a slightly larger flower) at Bodnant Garden. I first saw the yellow one in a friend's garden in the Cape area of South Africa and would love to be able to track down a plant here.



I think you may be trying to find a"Rosa banksias Lutea"A small yellow flower climber which is thornless

Thank you so much. I'm sure you're right, it looks exactly like a Rosea Banksia Lutea and the name rings a bell. The one I had was most definitely thorny though. I've tracked a supplier down and will be ordering one at once. Thanks again for taking the time to help.
