Rose of the Week: Peace
This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.
Peace is said to be the most popular rose in the world. This hybrid tea was introduced near the end of World War II, and millions of bushes have been sold. I got my first Peace rose in the mid-1970s, when I lived in North Carolina, and it was one of the first roses Betsy and I got here in the Glade. The yellow, pink-edged blossoms are always a treat. It has a mild fragrance as well.
