Peace Rose

In 1935, a French grower cross-pollinated two roses, resulting in a fine specimen with lush green foliage and magnificent blooms of ivory-yellow, brushed with pink on its edges.

In 1939 budding stock was made available to international grower. Two months later, Hitler invaded Poland and World War Two started. Most rose growers in France had to remove their roses in order to grow crops for food.

At war’s end, April 1945, Peace was introduced in America.
