About National Peace Rose Day
The Peace rose, formally Rosa 'Madame A. Meilland', is a well-known and successful garden rose. By 1992, over one hundred million plants of this hybrid tea had been sold. The cultivar has large flowers of a light yellow to cream colour, slightly flushed at the petal edges with crimson-pink.
Peace was 'christened' under the auspices of the American Rose Society on April 29th 1945, fittingly on the day Berlin fell near the end of the second world war.
