Noisette roses are smooth-stemmed climbers with glossy foliage and clusters of slightly fragrant double flowers in flushes from summer to autumn.

‘Madame Alfred Carrière’ is a vigorous, almost thornless large climber to 5m, with light green foliage and double, very fragrant, blush-tinted creamy-white flowers to 10cm in width, continuously blooming in summer and autumn.


2019- Severely reduced at the top of the trellis in mid-February. First rose on April 20 for Easter (photo). Blooms well in May. Very long sprigs in full bloom at the end of May. Resting in summer-autumn. Half a dozen flowers at the end of December!

2018 – Severely reduced at the top of the trellis at the end of winter. Beautiful regrowth in April. First rose on 7 May. Full of buds. Full blooms at the end of May. New growth well above the trellis. Scarcely any flowers this summer.

2017- Pruned mid-February. Nice shoots afterwards. Numerous buds early April. First flowers 15 April (for Easter!) Treated OLIGOSOL B on 3 May. Removed stained foliage at the beginning of May. Many buds. Full bloom mid May. Occasional flowering afterwards.

2016- After a short pause in March, it started to make foliage and flowers again. At the beginning of June it reaches a height of about 2 metres and seems to be climbing again. The foliage is very healthy, with only a few traces of rust. The roses are not very well formed, they are a little ” loose-shaped “, but have a delicious spicy scent that reminds me of sparkling (or mossy) roses. No flowers all summer or autumn, but strong shoots. Not much flowering this season.

2015 – Gift from ZZ in spring. Spent the summer in its pot, planted in autumn at the foot of a trellis. Started flowering almost all winter long!
