Rose of the Month Madame Alfred Carriere (Climbing Rose)
One of Monty Don's favourite roses this beautiful old Noisette climbing rose has been around for over 100 years and is still as popular as ever. It was actually voted the most popular white climber way back in 1908 and is still going strong. In fact the celebrated English writer and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll described this lovely rose as the best white climber of that period. It is interesting to note that Vita Sackville-West chose “Mme Alfred Carriere” as the first climbing rose to be planted in the rose garden at Sissinghurst in the 1930's and it still covers the walls of the South Cottage today. A very versatile rose it will grow on any aspect but a lot of its popularity is down to the fact that it also does very well on a North Wall. We are often asked to recommend a climbing rose and this beauty is nearly always our first choice. We have had one growing up a North wall here at the Garden centre for many years and it never fails to delight. A rampant tough and reliable rose which can reach heights of 20ft or more, it produces lovely globular blooms of white, with hints of pale pink and yellow. It repeat flowers right through the summer and well into the autumn. The first flush is quite spectacular with its masses of scented blooms. As with many roses the repeat blooms are not quite so prolific , but there are enough blooms to give plenty of colour to brighten up any wall, tree or archway. Our rose is almost 40 years old now and always looks very healthy. In all that time we have not seen any black spot or mildew etc. As with all roses that are trouble free, they seem to look after themselves, and consequently tend to get a little neglected, but despite our neglect our old faithful is still a picture of health. An added bonus with this beautiful rose is it's strong tea like perfume which is quite delightful.

“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.

The World Federation Of Rose Societies entered Madame Alfred Carriere into the Society's Old Rose Hall Of Fame in 2003 an honour shared with just 10 other roses: Cecile Brunner, Charles de Mills, Glorie de Dijon, Gruss an Teplitz, Madame Hardy, Old Blush, Mutabilis, Rosa Gallica Officinalis, Rosa Mundi and Sourenir de la Malmaison.
