Rosa 'Gloria Dei'


Rosa  'Gloria Dei'

I bought 2 Roses in a local shop today and it seems this one is named 'Peace' in England and 'Gloria Dei' in Germany. Anyone able to confirm this please?

Oh thanks M'land, I have potted them both up and put them in the cold greenhouse temporarily as I don't trust our weather right now!

M'land, only 9 degrees in the greenhouse today with not a glimpse of sunshine. I have noticed many supermarkets are selling pretty good plants for a fraction of the garden centre price.

I bought a DA Rose 'The Mayflower' for £5 (in a GC closing down sale) about 7 years ago ... fabulous perfume to it.

here is what Wikipedia say about the name Shirley_tulip
Rosa Peace - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Peace

In Italy it was called Gioia (Italian for "joy"), in Germany Gloria Dei (Latin for "glory of God") and in the US, Sweden, and Norway Peace. The rose eventually became known as Peace.

To read the full history of this wonderful rose do have a look at

It has a very special story

You are welcome Shirley_tulip. I like to read about how plants were found or bred. It is a very touching and humbling story and one that proves gardeners provide a great framework for bringing people together.

I have just bought the Peace rose and was only reading about the history of it yesterday, and Monty mentioned it also on Japanese Gardens, hope it does well for us :-))
