Cupped medium pink flowers in small clusters on a gigantically tall plant. It is difficult to imagine what to do with this rose, as it is so far out of scale for the average garden; nonetheless we see it again and again, surviving the toughest of climates and being loved for its 'down-to-earth' simplicity. AARS, 1955.

Immunex can cause unacceptable growth regulator effects on certain varieties of roses. This has been documented by independent and university researchers in Texas and at our own research facilities. The varieties that I have seen the most objectionable effects on are 'Peace, 'Garden Party', and 'Queen Elizabeth' roses. The symptoms appear as a severe stunting of plant growh, a darkening of foliage and a downward cupping of the foliage

Description. One of his fifty favorite roses. Parentage: 'Charlotte Armstrong' (a red Hybrid Tea) x 'Floradora' (a red Floribunda). One of the world's greatest roses. A grandiflora in the US, a floribunda in the UK. Very tall and upright, it can exceed 8 feet, with its flowers mainly very high up. It can be restrained to some extent and persuaded to bush out more by what might be called differential pruning. Do not, in other words, treat all the shoots with equal severity, but cut back a few hard each year and others less drastically. Blooms are carried sometime singly but more often in sizable trusses. Not fragrant.
