Comments The smallish, cupped white flowers of Aimee Vibert are borne in large clusters and have great fragrance. The plant repeats reliably, although there is some disagreement on degree. The foliage is dark green and is among the most handsome to be found among roses. In warmish (zone 7) climates the rose will stay evergreen through the winter, which may help it get off to a running start in its second year.

BTW: Vintage Gardens sells an Aimee Vibert which they claim is rather short and shrubby with quite good continuity of bloom. They also sell a climber as Aimee Vibert Scandens identical to the former except that it will reach 20 ft and is not quite so free with the blossoms.
