Francis Meilland - Father of Peacefrom $20.50
As delicate as a piece of fine porcelain, this exquisite, rose shimmers in tones from palest to blush pink, complimented by a rich fruity, citrus fragrance. A wonderful choice to include in a bouquet to welcome a new baby, as a ‘peace-offering’ or to add a romantic touch to a wed-ding, birthday or Valentine’s bouquet.
Belying its delicate appearance, Francis Meilland – Father of Peace is an award-winning rose in a competition considered the most difficult disease and garden performance trial for roses worldwide. Judged over three years for their disease resistance, good garden performance, beauty, fragrance and health, the ADR competition is the rose version of ‘Survivor’!
The rose is named in honour of Francis Meilland, breeder of the original, and world famous Peace rose, which he smuggled out of France just prior to the German occupation in 1940.
