Check "Alberic Barbier." It fits your description.
I believe you're right! Thanks Doug!
You're welcome, Renee. Since "AB" has been around since 1900, I think it's proven its worth!
@Douglas Hunt I have a climber called golden showers I believe, that seems similar this this one too, Do you know anything about them? They are beautiful and bloom like crazy but the blooms on mine seem to only last a day or 2 before the just drop off. Is that just the type of rose or is there anything I can do to prevent this?
It sure is indestructible! I need to move it because it really is in a bad spot.
It would be best to do that when the plant is dormant, Renee. If you must move it during the growing season: water, water, water!
Thanks Doug. No plans to move it until this Fall
Climbers when they set right can be magnificent. I had one by surprise i bought at a kmart, no name, it took off and covered the entire side of the barn within a couple years and bloomed all spring into fall. magnificent. Since you live in VA, I would say it came from Montpelier and just call it your "Virgin Dolley Madison Blushing Bride Rose" and enjoy the story which you can embellish each year with more cocktail parties..;)
@Johnchip great idea!
