Peace Roses

kin2mice(6b)March 15, 2011

My friend just lost her grandmother who used to be an avid rose grower and her favorite rose was the Peace rose. My friend would like to set up a memorial bed in her back yard and include a Peace rose. Does anyone have a cutting I can swap or pay postage for? Or does anyone know of a good dealer I could purchase one from? I don't have much to swap in the way of roses but I have lots of other stuff.

Thank you very much!

I saw it in the 1/2 price sale table at lowes, it was a bareroot rose, it was only $4.00, I live in California it's pretty easy to find.

Do others have luck with roses from lowe,s. I have been hesitant to buy the cheaper ones. Any advice?

Mouse, don't know where you live, but call your local garden centers, the privately-owned local ones, and ask them if they carry Peace. It is still very popular, and widely available.

You have received good advice here. If possible, get a quality Peace from a reputable nursery ... Peace, grown from cuttings on its own roots, is very, VERY slow to mature for me. A good grafted plant should perform very well in your garden.

I have purchased many roses from Lowes they are all doing fantastic and some of them were bareroot. Try it... their plants are nice there.
