Souv.de Mme Leonie Vienot

Post by SueH on 30th July 2013, 11:50

This rose has come to my attention lately in a rose catalogue. It looks lovely, but i want to know if anyone has grown it before and if it is a large rambler. Catalogue doesn't say!

Oh yes it can get quite large. I heard there is a barn in northern NSW covered by one.
 
Its a climbing tea. Its flowers mainly in spring with smaller flushes throughout the year. The spring flush is usually amazing and at our place it suffers a bit from powdery mildew.
 
That's her on the left of the green path. There are 3 (cutting grown) plants there and trellis they are growing on is 2 metres high and we are continuously trimming them.

Thank you Neptune and Balinbear. The photos are lovely and your "portrait" one Neptune, looks better than the one in the catalogue! The three "cuttings" look very healthy. Oh dear, it seems to be larger than I expected. I think I'll stick to Albertine!

Neptune, that is just fabulous. Albertine is a special rose to me, it's been grown in the family for years - at least 3 generations to my knowledge, and probably more. That is a lovely photo. Does the hedge belong to you?!

Albertine is one of our favourite ramblers. Shame it only flowers in spring but then again it could not flower like it does for the whole year.

Quite agree, but the one flowering is worth it and the scent is just fabulous! Actually, I have had a second and sporadic flowerings on an Albertine. Only happened once!

What a lovely deep rich pink! Balinbear, you said you have 3 growing, but have to prune them very hard to keep them in check. How hard do you prune them please? Oh, thanks for the photos! Smile

Actually there are three on either side of the path. We also have a couple of others around the yard as well.

They can take a reasonably hard prune. We will need to do ours later this year as there is a lot of dead wood under the green.

It's very popular and considered one of the best Tea's, or Tea Noisette. I'm still short of trees and built arbours to hang one on so nice to see your pix of one very mature.

Just found it Balinbear! What a beauty! I'm becoming more and more convinced to have one! Just where to grow it is my problem. Smile
