Mme Alfred Carrière

Type: Noisettes

One of the most fragrant of roses. Clusters of large, globular, cupped 3 1/2" flowers (petals 40+) of pale, pearl-pink, aging to cream on a strong plant with attractive foliage. A most outstanding pillar rose. More hardy than other Noisettes. We have reports of it doing very well in Philadelphia. A wonderful repeat blooming climber.

A must have rose for the fragrance collector!Review by janet
Have been growing this hard to find but excellent rose for >20 years. It met all the criteria for my fragrance themed plant collection. It blooms continuously in a zone 5. It's foliage as well as blooms are highly fragrant. It was Gertrude Jekyll's favorite climber. It can be prone to brown spot but I've found Bayer's systemic granules will completely control this.
I found Heirloom Roses after I moved and had to replant. Local nurseries now seem to cater to the retail crowd and finding older classic roses in my area is now impossible. So grateful that Heirloom Roses carries this wonderful rose! (Posted on 9/23/2018)
Amazing Tree Climber Review by MerrieMerrie
I gave Mme A. Carriere as a gift to a friend with a low water table. We planted her high in a mound of rich soil below the base of a Madronna Tree in zone 8 about 10 years ago. Mme Carriere has wound herself well over 30 feet high, throughout this tall sparsely branched tree, gracing it with a multitude of blooms every spring. It is an amazing site and the highlight of the little farmyard. My busy friend commented that she has never tended this rose in any way. (Posted on 6/4/2018)

Wow. Not Quite a house eater.Review by Linda J-M
This rose covers the back quarter of my two story house. Nice scent and there are roses virtually all spring/summer. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
Wonderful roseReview by Lee
This is one of my favorite roses. It's extremely shade tolerant and has beautiful, heavily scented blooms. The petals dry well and retain a lot of fragrance. (Posted on 3/27/2017)
