Just like the name implies, this baby really pumps out the perfume. The blooms are a novel color for a hybrid tea – a lovely shade of purple lavender that lightens toward the petal edges, yet holds strong until the end of the line. Presented one to a stem, the flowers are perfect for cutting so yo can add a splash of fragrance wherever you desire.

Russet Floribunda.

Hot Cocoa’: Tom Carruth’s new floribunda is this year’s most talked about rose, the one causing the most drooling and mass hysteria. The color is outrageously, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, though it seems to vary with temperature, time, and the eye of the beholder. I’ve seen it described as cinnamon, brick, russet, smoky, and “rich chocolate-orange with a purple-burgundy cast.” Stand back and let me through!

Those of us who lust after coffee colored roses have run ourselves ragged in the past, fussing over pathetically wimpy hard-to-find twigs that looked like death warmed over by mid-summer. But not ‘Hot Cocoa’!

Rosarians who’ve grown it in test gardens are raving wildly about its health, vigor, and ability to hold color in heat. Exhibitors, arrangers, and organic gardeners alike are applauding the lush healthy foliage, fruity fragrance, and fast repeat bloom. I’ll be putting six in my daylily beds.

PEACE

 

Yellow blend Hybrid Tea.

The world’s most famous rose, in brilliant yellow and pink, first introduced to the U.S. by The Conard-Pyle Co. over fifty years ago. More popular today than when it was first introduced. A rose your garden should not be without.

HISTORY:

Hybridizer Francis Meilland sent his cuttings of this new rose just before the war, and communication between the cultivators was not possible.

The rose became known as Peace in the following way. In early 1945 Meilland wrote to Field Marshal Alan Brooke (later Viscount Alanbrooke), the principal author of the master strategy that won the Second World War, to thank him for his key part in the liberation of France and to ask if Brooke would give his name to the rose. Brooke declined saying that, though he was honored to be asked, his name would soon be forgotten and a much better and more enduring name would be “Peace”.

The adoption of the trade name “Peace” was publicly announced in the United States on 29 April 1945 by the introducers, Messrs Conard Pyle Co.. This was the very day that Berlin fell, officially considered the end of the Second World War in Europe. Later that year Peace roses were given to each of the delegations at the inaugural meeting of the United Nations in San Francisco, each with a note which read:

“We hope the ‘Peace’ rose will influence men’s thoughts for everlasting world peace“.

Peter Beales, English rose grower and expert, said in his book Roses:

“‘Peace’, without doubt, is the finest Hybrid Tea ever raised and it will remain a standard variety forever”.

Yellow blend, pink edges. Mild to strong fragrance. 40 to 43 petals. Average diameter 6″. Very large, full (26-40 petals), cupped, high-centered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.

Height of 4′ to 6′ (120 to 200 cm). Width of up to 3′ (up to 90 cm).

The cycle of bloom and growth is never ending and provides a show of color from early Spring well into the hard frosts of winter On can’t say enough about its maintenance free lifestyle. It is drought tolerant; surviving and even thriving in the most devastating of dry summers. Humidity… bring it on. You’ll be hard pressed to find a speck of black spot on this healthy plant. There is hardly anything which will stop this rose from blooming. You can expect to have blooms everyday throughout the summer. We believe that this is one of the best

Hot Cocoa

Russet Floribunda.

Hot Cocoa’: Tom Carruth’s new floribunda is this year’s most talked about rose, the one causing the most drooling and mass hysteria. The color is outrageously, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, though it seems to vary with temperature, time, and the eye of the beholder. I’ve seen it described as cinnamon, brick, russet, smoky, and “rich chocolate-orange with a purple-burgundy cast.” Stand back and let me through!

Those of us who lust after coffee colored roses have run ourselves ragged in the past, fussing over pathetically wimpy hard-to-find twigs that looked like death warmed over by mid-summer. But not ‘Hot Cocoa’!

Rosarians who’ve grown it in test gardens are raving wildly about its health, vigor, and ability to hold color in heat. Exhibitors, arrangers, and organic gardeners alike are applauding the lush healthy foliage, fruity fragrance, and fast repeat bloom. I’ll be putting six in my daylily beds.

(PPAF) Milk chocolate and lavender? You have to see it to believe it! It’s hard to imagine a milky chocolate-colored bud maturing to a solid soft lavender blossom. The transition is so unusual and actually quite beautiful. The chocolate is creamy, like latte, but the latte goes ‘loco’ and finishes fully lavender. The blooms have impeccable show form and are long-lasting on the plant and in the vase. Rounded, bushy plants are chock full of deep green leaves that stay clean and healthy. Beyond its novelty, this is a great plant! Flower Size: 3-1/2 to 4-1/2″. Fragrance: Mild. Hybridizer: Bedard, 2012.

You might think stripes are a new-fangled thing. But it is the old rose heritage that brings the genetic stripping to this spicy scented new-comer. Each petal is as unique as a snowflake–some more burgundy-splashed-white, some creamed-swirled-red-all on the same vigorous plant. The old-fashioned form & fragrance may remind you of its stingy blooming ancestors. Yet the nearly continuous number of blossoms lets you know there’s modern kinfolk in there, too. Distinctive clean quilted foliage.
