Discovered in the windy city of Chicago, this sport of the world-famous Peace rose has large, copper-pink blooms that shimmer with a canary-yellow at the base of the petals. Interesting, leathery foliage is disease resistant. Loves hot weather and does well in zones where the winter temperatures are frigid.

||Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
||Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
