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?
Reply #4 of 6 posted 20 FEB 09 by AnitaSacramento
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'.

After years of seeking aid trying to establish an ID for the rampant thornless remontant Florida Mystery Rose "Barfield White Climber" I now feel that this rose may be in fact be it! I stumbled on this notion while thumbing through Mike Shoup's rose book on the way back to Tampa from giving my talk on pro-biotic rose growing at his 2008 Fall Festival. "Barfield" is 99.9% prickle free here in Tampa own root.....I'd love to know if Aimee is too! Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

I grew 'Aimee Vibert'. In my opinion they are not the same.

Just a misspelling (2 times) in the reference list (The Rose Manual, Robert Buist): the town of Vibert is not Lonjeamaux, but Longjumeau.
