Rich sunset tones, sweet fragrance, and perfect form combine to make this the most beloved Rose of recent generations!

Discovered in 1935, it was named 'Peace' to mark the end of World War II!
Perhaps the finest Hybrid Tea ever introduced, 'Peace' has a history as fascinating as its appearance!

In 1935, Meilland discovered seedling #3-35-50 and managed to send it to the U.S. on the last plane to leave France for America before war broke out. It was named the day Berlin fell to the Allies. The day peace was signed with Japan, it won AARS honors and members of the newly formed United Nations were presented with its blooms.

Each petal on the heavy, substantive 5- to 6-inch double blooms is a soft yellow edged with pink that deepens and spreads with maturity. From attractive ovoid buds, the petals unfold slowly around a high-pointed center. They are borne on heavy, strong, straight stems between 18 and 24 inches long, making them fantastic for vases.

Flower production is unbelievably lavish, and the blooms last a remarkably long time, both on the plant and when cut. The plant reaches 4 to 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide, covering itself in healthy, glossy, dark green leaves. Truly the one Rose to plant!

It should be pruned in the spring, with the removal of old canes and dead wood. Cut back canes that cross each other. Gardeners in warmer climates will want to cut the remaining canes by one-third, while those in colder climates will probably need to trim it a bit more.
