Gloria Dei

At home

We call this rose "Peace" here in Australia, but it has several names including
Mme Antoine Meilland, Beke, Fredrosen, Gioia and of course, Gloria Dei.
This is the 3rd try at growing this rose, and it hasn't exactly thrived in
my garden so when it does flower I really appreciate seeing the blooms.
It could be that the nursery I bought it from was using an old clone.

Best in original format

Canon EOS 40D ,Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8
1/800s f/5.6 at 90.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

I have always loved the story of " Peace" and how the cuttings were smuggled out of France in 1939 and the story that looks lovely, Von and I hope you have better luck growing this one

My mother grew this so it's one of the few roses that I know by name. This bloom looks beautiful. V

Gloria Dei is beautiful, I remember them from the Rosegarden in Bamberg:

I thought its a rather robust rose to grow! V.
