Antoine Rivoire

Cheers to a beautiful Sunday.


This beautiful rose is Antoine Rivoire. He’s a large flowering Hybrid Tea bred in 1895. His repeating blooms are light pink with a strong fragrance. He’s a smaller shrub, growing about 4′ x 4′.

Happy digging in the dirt  …

  1. Jeanni , does this rose resist black spot ? I wonder since it is an antique rose !

    1. Hi, Salli. Antoine did pretty good in my garden of neglect. lol He’d get some black spot but was able to shake it off and keep looking good. When I sprayed on a somewhat regular basis, he looked awesome.

      For an antique rose that actually doesn’t like to be sprayed, try Souvenir de la Malmaison. She does great with absolutely no spraying.

Talk to me!
