Here's a question. One of my co-workers just wandered in carrying a piece of a shrub that is growing outside of our building. I think it is a Lady Banks Rose. Do Lady Banks Roses have square stems? I know there is a shrub that looks like a Lady Banks Rose, but for the life of me I can't remember what it is so I can compare the two.
She wants to root this thing, whatever it is, and I said I would try and help, and yes I have scolded her for just breaking a branch off a shrub in a public area.
Okay, Google is my friend. True jasmines have square stems, and this looks like a primrose jasmine.
Blue that isn't a Lady Banks rose, you may be right about the primrose jasmine.
Thanks Dale. I'll try and remember to bring my camera to work and take a picture of it. I simply hadn't paid much attention to it until she was standing here holding that branch asking me what it was and how to root it.
I don't know my shrubs and trees as well as I should.
heres a photo of my Lady Banks (banksia rose) so you may be able to see the leaf shape.

Isn't that beautiful. thanks for posting.
Wow, that's beautiful! And that helps, this shrub is obviously not a rose. The square stem is so distinctive, I think it must be a jasmine.
