Rose Breeders
Roses Bred by Barbier
AbeDarbyTrim Phot

At the beginning of the twentieth century there was a resurgence in the interest in using roses as landscape plants. Much development was done by Barbier, Lambert, Pemberton, and Van Fleet with wichuriana climbers, hybrid rugosas as shrubs, and multiflora hybrids as polyanthas, ramblers, and so-called hybrid musks. Most of Barbier's remembered output falls in the first category. While his roses may not be planted frequently enough in America, a few such as Albertine have been used quite liberally in England and France.

Several of these climbers I have seen trained as standards (tree roses) at Roseraie de l'Hay where they exemplify the glories of foliferous, small flowered roses trained in this manner. Barbier's polyanthas are particularly important for their strong colors which are much less common in polyanthas compared to pale colored ones. Most of these roses deserve much more garden exposure.
