My Climbing Peace rose on May 20,2006 - there are over 200 blooms and buds on this single specimen of this climbing rose. I garden in zone 8a.
A stunning rose indeed! This rose (Peace) is famous for its role as peace harbinger at the end of World War II. It is renowned for its vigor, blooms and foliage. It set the standard for all modern roses of this century.
It was one of the first roses to prove that rose bushes can be beautiful even when not in bloom.
But bloom it does, as demonstrated here by cactus Pete.
What it lacks in fragrance, it makes up for in sheer beauty! Give it a few years to grow, and you'll be picking Lots of beautiful blooms yourself.
Golden yellow blooms have pink edges.
There is quite an interesting history on this rose Read the history here
