is the last of Pernet's "buddies" still in active business. He is a very skilled rose grower, and the younger generation is eager for his counsel. He practices very close pruning on old plants....In his breeding work he is partial to the H.P. Frau Karl Druschki as a reinforcer. Chambard is expertly helped by his niece, Mme Denoyel, and their best productions of late years are Marguerite Chambard, Souvenir de Mme Chambard, Governor Alfred E. Smith, and Golden Queen.
