This bloom of Peace is what I've been waiting for, the classic look.

Gorgeous blooms! Especially like your royal William. Is it a good re-bloomer and is it fragrant? Thanks for sharing.

Bayourose - Thank you. I've had my Royal William quite a few years. It is a dependable rose, sometimes a little slow to repeat and averages about one dozen blooms per flush, which I consider fair. Mine used to get very tall, but in recent years it probably doesn't get over 4 ft. tall. It has a nice tea fragrance and I consider it a true red, it is a pretty rose in person. Even though I don't consider it a heavy bloomer, I always enjoy the blooms I do get.

They all look so picture perfect Sara Ann!! I've tried to grow Peace two times and it died. I need to try one more time. Not sure what the problem is. Your bloom of it is gorgeous!! Judy

Thanks Prettypetals. I have two Peace bushes in the same bed, but not next to each other, the bush with the rose pictured repeats quickly, but the other one is just sitting there, it looks healthy, hopefully it will bloom again by fall. Roses can be so unpredictable! If you really like it I wouldn't give up on it yet.

Wow!!! Peace looks incredible!!!! That is exquisite!!! Did you put it on helpmefind? You should! :)

Your Double Delight looks amazing!!! I get frustrated with mine - blooms never look that nice. :) It's on its 2nd year - I'm going to give it another year, then might think on whether I should keep it. Pictures like yours makes me want to hang on to it!!! Lovely!!

Thank you Seil, Iris and Carol. It almost seems trite for me to say it, but I do love Peace! Carol, I haven't put any roses on HMF yet, maybe one of these days. I hope your Double Delight starts doing better.
