Rose Peace Hybrid Tea
Rich sunset tones, sweet fragrance, and perfect form combine to make this the most beloved Rose of recent generations!
In 1935, Meilland discovered seedling #3-35-50 and managed to send it to the U.S. on the last plane to leave France for America before war broke out. The day that Berlin fell, it was given its auspicious name.
Each petal on the heavy, substantive 5- to 6-inch double blooms is a soft yellow edged with pink that deepens and spreads with maturity. The petals unfold slowly around a high pointed center and are borne on heavy, strong, straight stems.
Flower production is unbelievably lavish, and the blooms last a remarkably long time, both on the plant and when cut. Reaches 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. Truly the one Rose to plant!

Easy as 1-2-3
Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!
Here's all there is to it!
STEP 1 - When your roses arrive, open the box immediately and soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can't plant them right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Sprinkle roots with water every few days. (Please note: You can also grow roses in containers that are at least as big as a bucket.)
STEP 2 - Dig a hole about 18" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it's large enough to give the roots plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides. Build a mound in the center of the hole and set rose on top. For vigorous growth, abundant blooms and lush foliage, try adding J&P's Root Boost
STEP 3 - Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole. Tamp down lightly to remove air pockets and water well. Spread mulch around the plant to suppress weeds and retain moisture. Water 3-4 times a week until leaves begin to grow, weekly thereafter.

What to Expect
If this is the first time your are planting a bare root rose, you may be surprised by their brown roots and dormant stem. However, bare root roses provide the easiest and fastest way of planting roses without the concern of transplant shock.
Bare root roses may appear to be dead upon arrival, but the plants actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive and stressful growth of leaves right after planting.
Bare root roses are the best option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Our bare root roses are fully established plants that meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. Of course, since they are not in soil when you get them, there's no mess to contend with.
You can plant your bare root roses earlier in the growing season, since there are no leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area's last frost date in the spring and no later than two weeks after that average date. Since they don't have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish faster than those that arrive in containers.
Jackson and Perkins Exclusive Preservation Process
Our roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth utilizing a state-of-the-art wet cooler. By providing a uniform storage temperature just above freezing and employing a fog system to provide a consistent humidity of 100%, we are able to ensure that each of our roses remains fully hydrated and does not come out of its dormancy before leaving our facility. Bare root roses ordered elsewhere often arrive dry and shriveled. Through our exclusive preservation process, Jackson and Perkins is able to provide a fully hydrated premium bare root rose. Prior to entering the shipping container, we carefully wrap the root system to preserve the moisture and to provide a top-quality rose that is in optimal planting condition.
Gold Standard Stamp of Approval
Each Jackson and Perkins rose is individually inspected and graded. Only those roses that meet our standards for shape, viability, fragrance, and disease resistance will receive the Jackson and Perkins signature Metal Tag.
