December 2017: Love and Peace
Rosa Love & Peace was hybridized by Ping Lim and Jerry F. Twomey in 1991 and in 2002 is was introduced in the U.S. by Bailey Nurseries. The mildly fragrant blooms of this cheery hybrid tea are a bright yellow with cerise pink petal edges with no two flowers exactly alike in coloration. Growing on an upright, medium sized bush, this beauty is a great repeat bloomer and often the first to bloom during the spring flush.
Love & Peace was chosen to be December’s Rose of the Month for its name. During this month when we celebrate the holidays, for many the focus of the season lies on the importance of promoting peace in the world and sharing in the love of our faith and those we hold closest to us.
