mokkobara

IMG_3845 About this time of year, I often see this climbing rose called Mokkobara (Banksian Rose).

Many homes have it climbing on their fences, some have it arching over their front gateways.

IMG_3862 This one house, had it climbing all over the walls of their house.

IMG_3869 The rose has a slight fragrance.

I've seen yellow and white but like the light yellow color, so cheery.

Gorgeous! MotH is the "rose person" between the two of us and I'm sure he would like to add this to the yard if we had more space. Right now we've got 5 climbing roses in different colors, but another (topiary bush type) is on the horizon since nothing else seems to survive our winters.

roses are nice, but too bad no other types of plants can survive your winters, Rowena.

Take care.

I really wanted a japanese camellia but I've read that they need a shady spot (or at least partially shady). The spot we need to "colorize" is in full sun.

Rowena, I have seen most out in the open, so they must get "blazed" during the summer, if they aren't too expensive, you should try.

Thanks Kirk :)

indeed K :)

Take care.
