This Rose was raised by Alain Meilland in 1963 to honour his Grandfathers Memory who himself was a rose breeder and raised the Rose Peace.Papa Meilland is the nearest to black you can get at this time and the fragrance is fantastic.We only have 1 bush at the moment but will be increasing it in the Autumn.Enjoy it My Friends.
