“Mme Alfred Carriere” was bred in France in 1879 by Joseph Schwartz who was responsible for many famous roses such as “Mme Ernest Calvat” and “Roger Lambelin” to name a few. He dedicated this rose to the wife of Alfred Carriere, who was the chief editor of “Revue Horticole” a famous horticultural publication in France in the 1800's and a keen amateur rosarian. “Mme Alfred Carriere” was given the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993.
