Peter Lambert (Germany 1889-1939)

The most influential rosarian in Germany. A wealthy and educated business man, Lambert made a success through his wide and rigorous breeding programme, ensuring his selections were void of mildew and rust. His champion repeat flowering rambler ‘Trier’, named after his hometown, has been used to develop a British group of roses known as the Hybrid Musks and then later his own ‘Lambertianas’. These are well regarded for their deliciously strong scent.
