Rose Peace is worth a place in any garden, they start off a clear yellow and as the roses fade they turn to creamy yellow, often with a pink edge. The fully developed roses are enormous and the flowers are set off with plenty of dark green, glossy leaves. This rose looks just as good in a vase as it does in the garden and it smells delicious too.

This lovely Hybrid Tea Rose is one of the best loved roses of the last century, and its popularity endures today. Commonly called Peace, because it was launched in USA at the end of WW11, this rose was originally named ‘Madame A. Meilland’ after the breeder’s mother and it is still often listed under this name.

Rose Peace has been given an RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM) as an excellent garden worthy plant.

 

Plant

Plant roses into good garden soil that has been well dug and weeded; improve poor soil with compost.

Dig a hole wide enough to take the roots of the rose without cramping. Position the rose centrally in the planting hole with the bump on the stem (the graft union) level with the soil surface.

Back fill with soil to cover the rose’s roots, firm in gently and water well.

 

Your bare root roses will be delivered at the right time for planting, normally between autumn and early spring, depending on weather conditions. Unpack them immediately and plant as soon as possible after delivery.
