Alberic Barbier is a lovely, large rambling rose. Its pale yellow buds open into clusters of scented double, creamy-white flowers that cover the plant and are offset wonderfully by its small, glossy, almost evergreen leaves. Although not a huge rose like Kiftsgate or Wedding Day, Alberic Barbier is a strong grower, and as such is ideal for covering unsightly garden sheds, fences or for growing into small trees or large shrubs.
It does this covering job especially well because it holds its leaves for longer than most roses - often into late December - and it is one of the best roses to grow on a north facing wall. Very useful indeed which is why Alberic Barbier is one of the many roses on our list to hold the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. In the right position it can easily reach 20ft.
