I think this will be one of my favorite roses in my garden this summer. It’s Chicago Peace, a hybrid tea, and I just started growing it last summer.
It’s choke full of petals and the blooms are quite large. It’s a can’t miss flower once it’s blooming in the garden.
I planted it near my patio so that I can enjoy it’s beauty when I’m sitting outside in the summer or perhaps entertaining guests outdoors.
Chicago Peace has a light scent. I’ve found you have to get close to the rose to pick up it’s scent, but once you can smell it it’s quite nice.
Sorry I haven’t posted for a while. I’ve been feeling absolutely terrible this week! Plus, as I explained on my gardening blog my mouse died yesterday and our internet connections been on and off thanks to heavy ice storms and rain!
