Noisette Roses are most not hardy in the middle of Europe. Aimee Vibert and even Mme Alfred Carrire are the two Noisettes, which did only freeze back a little but do not die!

I was somewhat surprised to read in the March 1880 Journal des Roses (p.34), a report of which roses did or did not survive the very harsh winter of 1879-80. A correspondent from Chaillevois in northern France wrote that the three roses that resisted the freeze heroically were 'Persian Yellow', 'Aimée Vibert' and a rose whose name was unknown.

I suspect that 'Aimée Vibert' is hardier than HMF has her rated, and wonder if people growing her in colder climes can contribute their experiences of her cold-hardiness.

Parmi les faits donnés comme une preuve de l'hybridité, on cite la Rose Aimée-Vibert qui, dans tous les catalogues, se trouve classée parmi les Noisettes, et qui cependant à été trouvée, à ce que l’on m’a assuré, dans un semis fait avec les graines de la Rosa sempervirens.

[... raised from the seeds of Rosa sempervirens.]

The text and photos mix Aimee Vibert and its climbing sport, Aimee Vibert Scandens. The original plant is relatively compact, growing 4-5 ft tall and up to 8 ft wide. The climbing sport can grow up to 15 ft long canes.

All European nurseries offer 'Aimée Vibert' which is at least 12' tall, up to 20'. I would not know of the shrub form - does it really still exist?

Yes, the shrub form grows in the Sacramento Historic Rose Garden. We have taken cuttings from an original plant that survives in another section of the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery, which was established in 1850. Vintage Gardens catalog offers both the bush and climbing form, as well.

Would you perhaps have a photo of the shrub for this page?

Yes, I will post a picture. It will show a small bush, about four feet tall and wide. This rose is original to our 1850-era cemetery, and we have no way of determining its age. It has been severely pruned over the years - about 20 years ago, it was twice this size. The bush form of Aimee Vibert has been found in other California cemeteries. The flowers are somewhat smaller, and the plant is very remontant.

I will post photos of blossoms later on this year.

I volunteer w/ Anita at the Sacramento Historic Rose Garden. I've uploaded some photos of our bush form of Aimee Vibert. The photos were taken mid Nov 2009.

My Aimee starts bloom quite late here on Vancouver Island and tends to ball in the rain. Looks lovely when in bloom tho'.
