'Aviateur Blériot'. Rambler. Pale Tea Rose yellow, fading almost to white, the small flowers are slightly scented and borne in big clusters in summer, rather late in the rose season. It has glossy dark green foliage. For many years it has been popular as a weeping standard, for the sake of its color, but it is not otherwise seen now except where a ‘period piece’ Edwardian garden is maintained. There is rarely any repeat bloom. The rose, which appeared in 1910 was raised by a M. Fauque. It was named for Louis Blériot, the first man to make an international aeroplane flight, from Calais to Dover in 1909. Rosa wichuraiana x ‘William Allen Richardson’. Summer flowering. Fragrant.
