This is an exquisite Alba-Noisette Hybrid that, according to Charles Quest-Ritson, “combines the profusion of the Noisettes with the hardiness and grace of the Albas”. Ethereal, delicately textured white blooms with a small green eye completely cover the rounded bush. When grown next to a tree, or other support, this rose becomes a climber capable of going about 12 to 15 feet. Mme. Plantier is a treasure: disease resistant, shade tolerant, requiring almost no maintainance.
Intoduced in 1835.
