Francis Meilland - Father of Peace

Francis Meilland - Father of Peace

from $20.50

Type: Hybrid Tea

Brand: Meilland

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.

Potted Rose Supplied in Plastic Pot or Gro Bag. May be supplied as a recently potted dormant plant during Winter while into Spring and Summer will be well established and pos-sibly flowering. A potted rose will be settled long enough to establish that it has a good sur-vival rate. Protect from frost and keep well watered.

Bare-Root Rose will be supplied only in damp paper with sawdust, sphagnum or peat moss and as the name suggests with bare roots ready to plant and must be planted immedi-ately after soaking for 24 hours after arrival. Bare-root roses have more risk of non-survival than a potted rose and generally one would expect 80-90% survival rates.

Water well and often with no fertilisers at planting for approx. 3 weeks until established.
