I read this recently: Gertrude Jekyll, Wood and Garden p.40 "What are generally recommended as climbing Roses are too ready to ramp away, leaving bare, leggy growth where wall-clothing is desired. One of the best is climbing Aimée Vibert, for with very little pruning it keeps well furnished nearly to the ground, and with its graceful clusters of white bloom and healthy-looking, polished leaves is always one of the prettiest of Roses. Its only fault is that it does not shed its dead petals, but retains the whole bloom in dead brown clusters."

I will heartily agree with everything that Ms. Jekyll has written. But I will add a second fault; Aimee seems to be the most appetizing rose in my garden to deer. Fortunately, she is vigorous enough to shrug off repeated attacks.

Writing from eastern England 2021 -

This rose is a vigorous grower in the first season, like a rambler throwing out long thin floppy canes...
Few flowers but they have a strong apple scent, which is the only reason I'm keeping it, so far.. I hear such good things about it, so I live in hope on this front.. they do not appear to age well..

I have been looking into the rose Aimee Vibert located in The Old Parliament House Macarthur Garden. I was unsure if ours was the climber but reading through the comments is it possible that this is the bush form. It has never really taken off and has struggled over the years. The first photo has been posted under Aimee Vibert Climber. I have also found old plaque referencing Aimee Vibert 1828. Any comments on the below photos are welcome. Macarthur Garden, HRG139 H14 - HRG129 G15, photos taken on March 27th (Autumn) 2021.
