Pruning a banksia rose is done after flowering. It could be either during the end of spring or onset of summer. The basic aim of pruning a lady banks rose is to remove dead or diseased branches. Even damaged branches are to be pruned. Such branches can be identified by the color changes of the stem. If the stems are yellowish or brown, you may remove them. The branches have to be removed from the very base (as close to ground). Loppers can be used for this purpose. You may also remove the canes that are overgrowing, if you wish to reduce the size of the plant. In that case, make sure that the cut is made just below a set of leaves. In this way, you may also prune the branches to a standard height.
The rose flower has been associated with mythologies, superstitions and legends. This flower is said to symbolize silence. There is a superstition that rose flowers if thrown in fire bring good luck.
When you plant a Lady Banks' rose in your garden, plant it in an area that receives the maximum sunlight, for the plant rarely grows well in shade. Also, for optimum growth, give your rose plant ample space to happily spread its branches. The Lady Banks' rose is unable to withstand temperatures below 15F.
Rafflesia ArnoldiiAnother species of smelly flowers, growing in the rainforests of Sumatra Islands, Indonesia, rafflesia is probably the world's biggest flower. It is said that the stench of this flower is so overpowering that nobody can go near it. The flower has large and heavy petals, which resemble meat, hence it is also known by its other name 'meat flower'.
