Probably the most famous & popular Rose of all time; Peace has beautiful primrose-yellow flowers that fade to blush-pink at the tips. Each of its large, showy double blooms is accompanied by a delightful light fragrance! Repeat-flowering, disease resistant and easy to grow, this hardy, vigorous Hybrid Tea variety is a brilliant garden performer.
Endorsed by the RHS Award of Garden Merit and public alike - It has been voted World's Favourite Rose too in 1976. It is steeped in history and was named in 1945 to commemorate the end of World War II, having been smuggled out of France as a seedling during hostilities. Later that year Peace roses were given to delegations at the inaugural meeting of the United Nations with a note that read: We hope the Peace rose will influence mens thoughts for everlasting world peace. 'Peace is the finest Hybrid Tea ever raised and it will remain a standard variety forever' - Peter Beales, Rose Expert.

To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.
Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and donít worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.
Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
