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.


 o
RE: Perfecf Peace?

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

RE: Perfecf Peace?

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

Number two

Number three

Thank you Mossy - Those are very pretty, especially like the third picture.

I really need to buy this rose. Had it a few years ago but it died. Beautiful!! Judy

RE: Perfecf Peace?

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.

Oh you guys!!!! I can't believe that Peace can really look that pretty. I've never seen it in person - but WOW - those are gorgeous pictures!!!

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.

RE: Perfecf Peace?

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!


 o
RE: Perfecf Peace?

Thank you Paul and Seil - Peace is a beautiful rose. I do hope mine stay reasonably healthy.

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

Here is a link that might be useful: History of Peace rose


 o
RE: Perfecf Peace?

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

Sara-Ann both pics of your Peace are perfect, I especially love the second one. Thanks for sharing!


 o
RE: Perfecf Peace?

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.

Wow, there are so many exquisite Peace specimens. Well done everyone. :)
