Jean-Pierre Vibert (France 1813-1851)
A veteran of Napoleon’s army, Jean-Pierre Vibert turned to hybridising roses in the early nineteenth century. One of the founders of the now National Horticultural Society of France, he was truly passionate about all plants, therefore his introductions span across many groups of roses including china’s, climbers and teas. One of his most famous introductions is Aimee Vibert, a white climber, named after his wife.
