An Anglian clergyman come rosarian. Pemberton founded his nursery in Romford, where he eventually grew and sold up to 40,000 roses annually. Remembered most for creating the class Hybrid Musks. These have huge sprays of blooms thought to be descended from the repeat flowering rambler ‘Trier’. Today there is a Rose Garden in his memory, which is also attempting to find over 50 missing Pembertons.
