Rosa ‘Madame Plantier’

Noisette rose, classified by William Paul as a Hybrid Noisette, but it is now often regarded as an Alba rose. ‘Madame Plantier’ has medium-sized, creamy white flowers, changing to pure white.  An immense bloomer, it forms a large bush or tree.  [Paul (1848, 1863, 1888, 1903), Rivers (1863)].



Horticultural & Botanical History

Introduced by Plantier in 1835.  Paul also included it among his Sempervirens roses in 1848, and Les Plus Belles Roses au début du XXe Siécle describes it as a cross between Rosa alba and Rosa moschata.  [Amat].



History at Camden Park

Included in a handwritten list of roses dated 1861, probably intended for a new edition of the catalogue that was never printed.  [MP A2943].
