Mme Alfred should easily make 5-6m. I suspect my friend's in the UK is higher.... "location location" and all that. Smile Mine would be about 4 at the moment? (2 yrs inground)

My friend Lynette has a mature Madame Alfred Carrier and it is as high or higher than her roof of her visitors cabin/garage with a wide spread. Very impressive rose. She gave me a extra one she had and it had grown very well before I had to cut it back to bring to Tasmania.
My favorite clematis I have ( hopefully it is still alive as I stuck it in a container od dirt with the daffadils and Iries and they still have to be washed before I bring them down next trip ) was the one in the middle photo. I had it growing with Pierre de Ronsard. I think it bloomed Spring and Autumn. I lost the names after other times I had to move my garden. I think it bloomed twice a year for me. I am going to build up a big collection of clematis growing through my garden down here.

what beautiful photos for this particularly miserable saturday morning. I love clematis among the roses. Clematis strike really well. I just scrape a little of the bark away and lie the cutting horizontally in a pot of striking sand. I have the white montana growing through Pierre de ronsard, clematis 'freckles' growing through a banksia rose, one of those big blowsy purples growing thru conrad ferdinand meyer and clematis nepalensis growing through gertrude jekylls.. i will aim for photos this spring..

Thanks Harriet for the information. I haven't tried to strike Clematis yet, but I will be down here.
I hope to have my new DVD camera ( which takes photos too ) up and running soon, I found last night the charging cords are not in the bag and the battery is nearly flat. Before that I couldn't find where I had packed it, the camera and case is so compact.

camera cords are the bane of our life.. we use canon cameras.. my husband has a professional level and mine just below that and i have noticed that his camera takes truer- to life shots of purple and reds..here is my blowsy clematis from last season but in real life it is a more solid purple[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ozeboy , i looked up Guinee and Brownwell roses which led me on a trail to Kordes and Earth-Kind roses , talk about spending my day on the computer and not doing housework , raining outside again , bugger want to prune . Guinee seems to be a once bloomer and Kordes gets accolades for breeding disease resistant roses and Earth- Kind for trialling and assessing no spray , low care roses. i'm probably not saying anything new to you , Kordes are supposedly releasing fragrant , disease free roses into USA in next two years , gives us hope doesn't it especially if you like hybrid teas ....
