Gardeners' Notes:

Positive tgwWhale On Dec 17, 2010, tgwWhale from Casco, WI wrote:

I have two of these roses and have had very good luck with them. The flowers are beautiful, though the fragrance is mild. The growth habit is bushy and the bushes have a lot of blooms on them. It is not uncommon to have 4 or 5 open on one bush, with several more in various stages of opening. It reblooms quite quickly.

Love and Peace has survived our NE Wisconsin (zone 5) winters well if boxed up and buried in ground. For me it is more winter-hardy than most hybrid teas.

The bush grows very vigorously and is well-formed -- not gangly or too tall. The stems are not very long in this climate, but are long enough to use for cut flowers. The flower color is less intense during the hot summer. The buds tend to "ball up" and not open when it gets cold, so it is not a good fall bloomer. It is somewhat susceptible to black spot, but then, most roses are.

I recommend this rose as one that, for a hybrid tea, is beautiful and quite easy to grow. Thumbs up.

This is one of the best roses in my garden. It has beautiful blooms and blooms a lot. The color is amazing although it doesn't have any fragrance. The foliage is shiny green and doesn't get much disease at all. It is winter hardy with a bit of protection.

This is a great Rose for beginner's. It was my first and it performed wonderfully. The bi-color blooms are beuatiful. It's fragrance is very mild, but it makes up for it in sheer beauty.

For the past 2 summers I have, due to knee surgery, been unable to tend my garden at all. While many of my roses sulked over the neglect, this plant continued to bloom consistently even while undernourished, crowded with weeds, never sprayed with fungicide, and forced to cope with unpruned, faded blooms. It does suffer blackspot here in the humid South, but even that has not slow its productivity. Here, it blooms through Thanksgiving.
