There is nothing on earth like the exquisite beauty of the famous Peace Rose. We recommend that all Rosarians include that meaningful selection in their Hybrid Tea collections.
But did you know that a gorgeous sport of the Peace exists? In 1962, Stanley C. Johnston found a flower with deeper coloration growing in Chicago and hybridized it.
Chicago Peace® (Rosa 'Chicago Peace') is a wonderful variant of the renowned Peace Rose, Chicago Peace produces huge, showy blooms with a peachy background and rich strawberry-red edging that can spread throughout the petals.
Study all aspects of these amazing blooms, as the reverse is an intense coppery gold. The long-stemmed flowers make a stunning bouquet in a vase.
Grow your own for a season filled with triumph from bud to bouquet! Gift yourself these vigorous Hybrid Tea Roses...or present them to a loved one.
With their exuberant deeper toned colorway and timeless cupped flower form, Chicago Peace becomes an amazing focal point in your landscape. Talk to it, adore it...this lovely Rose is well worth the care.
An open Chicago Peace rose can reach six inches across! You'll be delighted with blooms in late spring to early summer, with periodic rebloom.
This handsome bush is also reliable in tough conditions, as Chicago Peace Rose loves hot weather and doesn't mind the wind. Glossy, apple-green leaves make a stunning backdrop to enjoy the lavish blooms.
Most importantly, let Chicago Peace Rose become a way to hold the best of humanity in your hearts and prayers. This unforgettable Rose bush is a living testimony to strength, joy and harmonious color.

But this hardy selection is no hothouse Rose. Weave them into your garden design as a flowering accent to other perennials and small shrubs.
For a formal look, place Chicago Peace Roses along your pathways, and line them with a clipped Boxwood hedge. Or, showcase them in a Cottage Garden with Delphiniums, Salvia and Lavender.
Plant a pair on either side of your front door! You can keep these lovely tall bushes as a "Thriller" in 24-inch outdoor containers, too.
Don't forget to soften the look with billowing perennials around the edge of the pot. McKay's White Potentilla shrubs would also be a fine-textured partner.
No one said Hybrid Tea Roses were too fancy to play with. Let your creativity be inspired by our extensive online plant catalog!
For example, try Chicago Peace Rose next to the large, exotic foliage of Chicago Hardy Fig on a balcony. You'll have eye candy in summer and succulent fruit at the end of the season!
Plant Chicago Peace Rose in full sun. It needs at least six hours of direct sunlight...but can handle much more.
Well-drained soil is a must, as Rose roots don't tolerate standing water . Bring in more soil to create a planting mound to improve drainage after rain or watering.
Dig your planting hole twice as wide as the roots, but no deeper. Keep the soil level the same as we have grown in at the nursery.
Roses need a consistent schedule of watering. Apply mulch over the root zone, then pull it back away from the canes.
Feed your Roses specialty Rose fertilizer according to the label directions. Usually people plan to feed their Roses several times through the growing season.
Bag and remove all leaf litter in fall. In early spring, prune each of the Rose canes down to 6 - 8 inches at a 45-degree angle just above a nice, fat bud.
Hold space in your garden for a truly spectacular Chicago Peace Rose. Reserve yours by ordering anytime of year...we'll ship it to you when the time is right for planting in your area.
