double white lady banks rose

Posted: 27/06/2013 at 17:09

Thank you very much everyone.  I am new to gardening and so it appears I have much to learn.  I live in Southern California, where we all have very small, cramped yards. 

I will continue to research climbers that are doubles and pure white for my area.  The Long John Silver is beautiful but not readily available.

Thanks again!

I'd absolutely love to have a double white lady banks rose on my back wall (a rosa banksiae alba plena), but am hesitant because it can become so large.

Does anyone know if this rose can be pruned back to twice the height of a man and the same for its width?  Easily?  Is this realistic?

I absolutely love the alba plena of the rosa banksiae.  I'd like to plant one on the back wall of my garden but only wish it to grow to a size of 8 feet by 8 feet.

Does anybody have experience with this rose?  Would it be unreasonable for me to expect I could keep it pruned back to this size most of the year?
