Albertine is described as once-blooming, but I get a few additional blooms later on. Mine bloomed big in May and early June, but she has a blossom and a bud now, in July. Does anyone else experience this?

Mine started blooming half June and still has some flowers.

I garden on very light soil (we are a stone's throw from a river) and, as a result, Albertine roots almost everywhere she touches ground for very long. One of of my basic off-season chores is to wade into its mass of thorny branches and uproot baby plants.

Maybe an idea to send them to the members in the USA, that are on the cuttings list for this rose?

'Albertine' was bred in 1921 by Barbier Freres, in France from R. wichuraiana x 'Mrs. Arthur Robert Waddell, a 1908 HT. Barbier differed from other rambler breeders who used hybrid perpetual on wichuraiana to produce roses like ‘Excelsa’, Barbier used tea, hybrid tea and even pernetiana. While no parentage is listed for ‘Mrs. Arthur Robert Waddell’, and ‘Albertine’ its 1921 descendant is said to have no influence of pernetiana [Rose Pigments From the Viewpoint of the Chemist, 1988], ‘Albertine’ (the child) is so healthy for me, and ‘Mrs. A. R. Waddell (the parent) has a fair amount of black spot. Which leads me to wonder, do I have the right Mrs. Waddle? Or can a rose [Albertine] lose the signs of pernetiana in just one generation.

Patricia, the Mrs AR Waddell I got from Margaret has never shown any Blackspot, but at this moment a minute touch of Powdery Mildew. Mine cutting grown took a little while to get established but now is powering away in new growth and height.

Thanks Warren – I was sort of querying why ‘Albertine’ is always so healthy, but now realize it is probably the wichuraiana influence from its seed parent. I am gardening in a wet winter climate. When the weather warms up and humidity strikes, black spot is a normal occurrence in my garden. I feed the roses and they produce new leaves and by the time they do, the rainfall is gone and we have no more black spot for the rest of the summer. (I will continue this comment in the ‘Mrs. A. R. Waddell’ file.)

In The Netherlands, Albertine is of ill repute/infamous as for mildew. But it always comes back strong...
Except for bare frosts with sunshine.
