Chicago Peace Rose

Pink Hybrid Tea Roses

chicago peace rose

Chicago Peace Rose, lovely pink hybrid Tea Roses with a blend of pink and yellow flowers that are large, showy and slightly fragrant. An amazing color blend on this bi-color rose.

The deep pink grows into a darker yellow at the base, with streaks of pink, yellow, and apricot.

The Chicago Peace rose, was discovered by a gardener (Johnston, 1962) in her backyard in Chicago. Some think this sport of the Peace rose is by far the best! Others think it misses the delicate touch of it's parent,and dislike the way the flowers quickly fade to a duller pink and cream color when fully open. I think they are lovely!

The original Peace rose is primarily yellow, with a hint of pink, but these hybrid roses are deep rose pink, light rose, apricot, and yellow, with more intense colors. The Chicago Peace has showy, fragrant blooms that are full form, with a fruity/tea scent. The plant has good all-season bloom. These gorgeous classically formed blooms make striking cut flowers, and are simply stunning in the garden.

Hybrid tea roses owe their popularity in part to their amazing color range, which notably includes yellow shades, that are not often found in other varieties. This sport of the Peace rose can certainly attest to that. They have long, straight stems, lovely pointed buds, and high centered blooms. The long lasting blossoms, which continue all season, are good exhibition roses, and make wonderful cut flowers for the vase.
