The Rose Manual pp. 93-94 (1847)
Robert Buist
Aimée Vibert, or Nevia, is a beautiful pure white, perfect in form, a profuse bloomer, but though quite hardy, does not grow freely with us; however, when budded on a strong stock it makes a magnificent standard, and blooms with a profusion not surpassed by any; this very exquisite variety was grown from seed of a rose that blooms only once in the season (Sempervirens Pleno) by J. P. Vibert, of Lonjeameaux, near Paris, who has grown many very superb roses from seed. When I visited him, in 1839, whilst discoursing upon roses, he directed my attention with great enthusiasm to this plant, and said, “Celle ci est si belle, que je lui ai donné le nom de ma fille chérie—Aimée Vibert.” This enthusiasm can be easily understood by those who, like myself, have been so fortunate as to see the two “ Aimée Viberts ”—the rose and the young girl, both in their full bloom, and both as lovely as their sweet name. In the southern states it grows freely, and is a profuse bloomer during the fall months.

Among whites, Amie Vibert is a pure little gem. Mr. Buist very eloquently describes the enthusiasm of the raiser, M. Vibert, on inviting him to come and see his beautiful seedling rose, which had then (in 1839) just shown itself, and had been named after the daughter of the raiser.

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.
