I've been waiting for that elusive perfect Peace bloom, this seems to be the best I can do. I would love to see yours.

Beautiful. The more I learn about roses the more amazed I am at how many roses look so similar. I don't have Peace but I have Charlotte Brownell which is pictured here and your Peace reminds me so much of this one.

Denise - Very lovely, and they do look similar. I just looked up Charlotte Brownell on Help Me Find and Peace is in its parentage.

It's hard to pick a favorite out of literally thousands of photos, but here are three of my best.

Oh, Mossy and Sara--I'm weak with desire! Such beautiful photos of Peace--my favorite rose/colors in the whole world.

But alas! she blackspots! Such a shame. I gave up on her after several futile tries. But I do adore looking at good photos of her.

Kate - Thank you. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Peace will stay healthy, so far it has.

Thank you Carol. Peace can be quite a lovely rose. I remember when I was a novice and every bloom was a special event, my Peace had seven of the most perfectly formed buds, back then I used to cut more of them to share and I took it to my mom's workplace, she loved it! I put them in a turquoise vase, it was so beautiful.

Excellent pix. Sara-Ann, your last pic may be just about perfect. I myself have tried to grow this rose several times. Just too much blackspot in our climate.

Well, there is a reason why Peace is one of the most beloved roes of all time and why it's still around. You've just shown us why!

Outstanding picture. The history of this rose is impressive also.

Thank you for the refresher on the history of Peace. Besides its beauty, it's one reason I love this rose so much.

I think that is the perfect. I find in so many places and get from this site.
If you find red and Black mixed rose than please tell me because I love to see that rose in my Garden.
