As the Wisteria starts to drop it's petals the Banksiae Banksiae Rose comes into it's own. This is an amazing thornless rose that keeps most of it's leaves through winter and flowers very early, in the late spring. It grows rampantly and being a native of China really needs a protecting wall to help it through the winter. It has the bonus of a beautiful perfume. It is best grown near where you walk because the flowers are tiny they can be enjoyed more close up, as well as the perfume.

Just as well Mike does an excellent job of pruning many times during the summer.

As the Wisteria comes to an end the Laburnum comes into it's own.

Isn't gardening a delight?
