Steve812 said:Thanks, Cal. I've only ever seen Love and Peace once, almost 20 years ago and it did not look nearly so good.
Is it a salvia or a penstemon in your avatar? It's a lovely shade of blue, and hard to get enough of in the garden.

HemNorth said: Cal, thank you for asking the question. I too have a pink and yellow rose which has no ID, so maybe I can get some answers. I've had Double Delight for 25 years, and just looked through 120 photos of them - they are so photogenic, and have so many different appearances. I had the Peace rose too, but not a rose that liked to hang upside down like yours.
By the way, I also like your Blue Salvia avatar - such a piercing blue that shoots straight to the heart.
HemNorth said:Hello @Steve812
I'm not familiar with being able to use something called 'EMF' as a tool for searching for Roses. Could you tell me what it stands for, please? I'm assuming it is a Website? Thank you so much.
Steve812 said:@EscondidoCal I would be happy for some blue salvia, if you had extra. I'm a great fan of salvias because they are one of the few kinds of plants that survive the low water/hungry critter pressures here.
HemNorth said:@EscondidoCal - - - Cal, I was just looking at a thread about Landscape photos, and @Calif_Sue had a Photo of Graham Thomas, which I clicked on. It took me to that page, where, at the bottom, where Landscape photos are, was a Photo of her Graham Thomas Rose with a blue Salvia called Blue Anise Sage (Salvia coerulea 'Costa Rica Blue').
Oh - - - I guess I could drag the pic to here!
fwmosher said:While I cannot justify the drooping bloom, it may well be either "Glowing Peace" or "Chicago Peace", both widely sold throughout the USA and Canada. It looks a little too "fluorescent" to be "Peace". Anyway, pretty rose!!
HemNorth said:Cal, thanks for your input about FRAGRANCE! To me, that is an absolute essential criterion. I also have Gertrude Jekyll and Abraham Darby, but now am alerted to the beautiful 'Intrigue' rose, and would like to add it to my small collection.
Another essential in regard to fragrance, is Fragrant Cloud.
