Updated information:

Ok, it's a Hybrid Tea. Will defoliate at times, which I really do not like.

However, bush form is decent without much work, and it's not toooooo spikey.

Really hot weather hammers the flowers a bit. To be honest there would be a good argument for disbudding it over summer.

Speaking of which, this one will hold onto dead flowers forever. If you gave them half a chance I'm sure they would outlast King Tut's mummy. Basically, every bloom this bush ever produces will need to be deadheaded.

The good news is that in every season apart from summer the blooms are literally awesome.

If anyone is wondering how good the scent of this rose is:

Yesterday I took one of the blooms over to a friend's shop. One of the girls there stuck her nose in for a sniff, and started making "Mmmm" noises.

Two minutes later, her nose was still buried in the bloom and "Mmmm" noises were still emanating from her. We practically had to drag her out of there before she asphyxiated herself.

It really is that good.

So far my one is growing really well, after being planted from bare root in mid June. Very vigorous and bushy.

The plant has not been sprayed at all. A few of the lower leaves have had blackspot, but you wouldn't notice if you weren't looking for them. Blackspot resistance seems to be very high.

I'm growing Pink Peace in Zone 9A Northern CA. It is a very beautiful rose, the color is unsurpassed when it comes to richly colored pinks imo, it just seems to glow sometimes! I planted it a year and a half a go and it is a pretty good bloomer for me. In summer the blooms don't last in this dry heat, can char within a few hours, and sometimes only has a few petals. In cooler weather the blooms hold up pretty well, very full petals open up widely and look good a long time on the bush. The fragrance is medium to strong- citrusy, nothing that excites me in particular. I'm addicted to the fragrance of Chrysler Imperial and Heirloom. My main problem with this rose is Rust...really bad rust in early summer, the rust magnet of my garden. The leaves tend to be light green like they are lacking iron, I don't usually feed my roses anything other than an all purpose but maybe this one would benefit from extra chelated iron. Even though it has it's problems, it's hard to imagine myself without it because it is just such a beauty.
