Babette. Syn 'Babette Rambler'. Breeder: Michael Walsh, 1906, United States. Parentage: Rosa wichurarana x hybrid multiflora. Class: hybrid wichurana. Long lost to the country of its birth, this rose could still be seen in several European gardens. I imported a plant a few years ago and presented replicas to several American Gardens. It blooms in clusters of medium-sized, lightly double, scentless, crimson flowers with occasional white streaks running down the petals. The petals have white bases and may have some white tipping as well. The plant has shiny leaves and is a vigorous climber to about 15 feet (5 meters).
