Rosa Banksiae grows over dome garage at Charca Casa

Monolithic’s founding guru, David South, wanted to share with the Monolithic Dome community his blooming Rosa Banksiae flowers, often referred to as Lady Bank’s Rosa, that have completely covered his dome-shaped, two-car garage.

The Rosa Banksiae are long-stemmed, woody vines that are rooted in the soil at ground level and use trees, as well as other means of vertical support, such as Monolithic domes, to climb to well-lit areas. These light yellow/pale roses are growing vigorously and are practically thornless, creating a glorious Easter holiday view at “Charca Casa,” the South home, where David and his wife Judy reside with their dog, Ariel.
