Item # 28577

Peace is one of the most well-known and beloved hybrid tea roses, and it was named Peace to commemorate the end of World War II. Bred by M. Meilland in France, this rose's development was interrupted by the war. It was sent to the United State for completion. The rose won AARS honors in 1946; the same day that the peace treaty was signed with Japan.

This soft-colored rose has large five to six-inch blooms in yellow edged with pink. As the rose matures, the colors deepen and spread. Heavy, straight stems support these magnificent flowers - ideal for cut flower displays. This rose can reach six feet in height and three feet in width with many large blooms and dark, glossy foliage.

So many colors

This rose does very well where I live.

Pretty flower
A star from NY wrote on July 10, 2013:

This rose looks beautiful and I just keep looking at it when these roses bloom. However, I haven't had too many blooms from this plant. There are rose plants around this one, which have gone through one round after the other, but this seemed very slow. Not even sure if it'll bloom again this year. Hopefully it does and if I can come back and edit this, I sure will.

Hard to Grow
NancyE from CA wrote on March 24, 2013:

Peace is a famous rose and when in early bloom is a stunner. That said, I have found it difficult to grow and the blooms wash out in the Southern California summer heat. I finally "shovel pruned" mine and every year avoid the temptation to try it again.

Satisfied with roses

I have purchased roses and gifts from this company for 20 years or more and have basically been satisfied with all areas of ordering and arrivals. I do like their roses very much and have a garden of more than 100 roses most of which are from them. Thank you.

Bareroot or Container?

World's Finest Roses

Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.


Bareroot Roses

Bareroot

Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.


Bareroot roses may look dead, with their brown roots and dormant stem, but plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting, which is very stressful.

You can plant your bareroot roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area’s last frost date in the spring. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.


Container roses

Container

Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren't dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into decorative containers and make an attractive gift.


Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like. As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot or container roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!
