In our yard it is planted next to our ‘Chicago Peace’ rose bush and they complement each other nicely.
The all time best selling rose in the world is the hybrid tea rose “Peace” bred at the end of World War II, it soon became a world symbol for peace.
This is my all time favorite in our personal garden. What it lacks in fragrance is made up with the beautiful blooms. The blooms are a fantastic creamy yellow with a touch of pink and it produces the most blooms of any of our rose bushes. Very hardy and a very showy plant, if I can find some more room in our yard I will buy another one of these. They look very nice in a bouquet as well. I liked it so much I planted the Chicago Peace rose as well. The Peace rose has a mild fragrance and is a hybrid tea rose.
