Just Planted this on Fortuniana, hope it will do as well as I have been told. Another member has Peace and Chicago Peace this same way and they are both over 5 feet tall with huge blooms.

My Aunt bought one of these for the front of her shop back in the 80's. Before our part of the family ever moved out west. While both My Aunt and her business are gone, her transplanted Chicago Peace is still as big and floriferous as ever. The blooms are huge, heavy petaled, and long lasting. The leaves are large and leathery. No disease. For whatever reason, it seems this sport has more success in the high desert climate than the original Peace does.

Chicago Peace is the Queen of Roses: the bloom so big and gorgeous that it's a centerpiece in any garden. One drawback: it's quite thorny, but the bush is compact so the risk is low.

How is this rose for winter hardiness in zone 5a? Still loving it? Thanks

I'm puzzled by the USDA cold hardiness rating of this rose. It's listed as 7b. Peace, the rose from which it sported, is listed as 5b. Furthermore, Chicago is in zone 5. So how is it that this rose survived there long enough after the sport occurred for someone to notice? Or was turning flamingo pink just a sign it had ceased to be cold hardy and wanted to retire to Florida?

I don't understand it either. I've noticed quite a few being changed to 7. Some I grow in zone 6, and some I know someone in Chicago grows funnily enough. Example - I noticed Belinda's Dream was changed to 7 on here, so I got worried about the 3 I have. (own root) I asked someone that grows it in Chicago just fine. He said he never had a problem, and many places that sell it say zone 5. I look for other information now, before I go by the zone info here. High Country Roses has Chicago Peace listed as 6. I just ordered one, but I still would have if I were in zone 5, for the reason you mentioned. I would give it some extra mulch to be safe, but I would have tried with this one to be sure.
