    The blend of soft pastel colors in the blooms of the Peace rose will never produce a vivid focal point in the landscape, but it will have a calming effect and a more subtle beauty. The rose has remained popular for about 70 years despite its drawbacks. The shrub itself is likely to have an ungainly habit, and the foliage is highly vulnerable to black spot in most locations. The two Peace roses that have been growing in my garden for the last 30 years, however, regularly produce many large blooms of exhibition quality without the aid of fungicides or any other chemicals.

    My wonderful and beloved mom used to grow the Peace rose wherever we lived. She loved the coloring of this rose a lot and it was one of her very favorites. Every year, she would have to use some sort of dusting chemical on the leaves to fight the pesky Japanese beetles we always had every summer. Out of all the different roses she ever grew, this is the one that reminds me the most of Mom. It is a beautiful and fragrant rose, but since I don't like thorny plants and/or using chemicals, I'm not going to grow it.

    A very old hybrid tea. I remember this rose well from my dad's flower garden. He grew roses, and Peace was one of his personal favorites. So the rose has been around for a long time.
