Live in the South and want a white, climbing rose? I've got the rose for you! It's called Madame Alfred Carriere. It's an antique rose with very light blush pink blooms that quickly turn pure white and that have a very sweet fragrance. Need some more encouragement? Well, this thing is vigorous! It just takes off and wants to cover territory. Mine's only going on its 3rd year and I've already had to cut it back to keep it under control. It also has very few thorns. My plant is growing in the shadow of a very large live oak tree so it doesn't get the best of rose conditions. These pics are from last year - wait till I get some new ones from this year! When I left home to go offshore this time, this rose was just putting out it's first buds of the year. It should be covered in blooms in a week or two.
