For example, a bouquet of roses representing innocent love says "you're forever young and beautiful," while a thornless rose says "love at first sight," and the tea rose says 'I'll remember you always.
Why I Love Rose Carmeline (And You Should, Too!)
Did you know that roses are not only native to the United States, but they are also our national floral emblem? Or that June is National Rose Month? The beauty of this extraordinary bloom is matched only by its seemingly boundless history and legend. An old legend has it that originally all roses were white. One night, a nightingale saw a rose and fell deeply in love, inspiring him to sing a song.
Before this, nightingales only chirped and croaked. When his passion overtook him, he pressed himself against the flower, and when the thorns pierced his heart. Ever after, the rose was forever colored red. Back to Shopping. Main Menu Quick Shop. Forgot Password.

Mar 26, Hana marked it as to-read Shelves: gardening , history-and-bio. I am not a fan of hybrid tea roses--generally too fussy, gawky, and too much in need of chemical assistance. I make an exception for one tea rose: Peace. Here's part of the story with a great video.
The cutting that the Meilland family of rose growers sent out of France in the early years just before World War II became a symbol of the hopes for peace that still elude us.

But happily the post war boom in suburban gardening and the well-deserved popularity of this great rose helped the family rebuild its business. The sixth generation of Meilland's family owned business helped pioneer whole new breed of super hardy shrub roses like the Bonica and Knock Out varieties that thrive in even the most unpromising gardens.
I can vouch for both!

Meilland in France which was unveiled to a war weary world on 29 September There are millions of these roses in cultivation today. However, it is much more than the history of a single rose. It is also the history of two remarkable families.
Francis Meilland who cultivated the rose was the great grandson of Joseph Rambaux who, at the end of a l This book is tracks the history of the creation of the beautiful rose named "Peace" in the USA Madame A. Francis Meilland who cultivated the rose was the great grandson of Joseph Rambaux who, at the end of a long day's work as a gardener in a Lyons park, started cultivating roses in a small garden plot in Lyons.
His son in law, Francis, became a professional rose grower and started hybridising some early roses. It could take years to see the results of a hybridising experiment at the end of the nineteenth century so extreme patience was required. Francis's daughter, Claudia, married Antoine Meilland, the son of a poor farmer from Chambeouf, who had been inspired to grow roses from a young age by a kindly neighbour. At the age of twelve, he went to work for a company or arboriculturalists to gain the necessary experience so that he could apply to join the firm of rose growers in Lyons.
His dream finally came true and he married Claudia in Known as Papa Meilland, he built up a successful rose growing business despite many challenges including WW1. Their son Francis would become an pre-eminent rose grower in his own right and was a visionary in his time.

He would construct the first greenhouse for flower growing in France and after WW2 would do the necessary work to obtain patent rights for plant hybridists in various countries including France, South Africa, Germany, Spain and Italy. Francesco was the son of an immigrant family from the Italian province of Calabria who came to Antibes in France. As a boy he also dreamed of becoming a rose grower and, after serving an apprenticeship as a cobbler, would start his own flower growing in business on the Cap.
His focus would become the growing of roses and other cut flowers for the tourist industry in southern France. The story also celebrates the life of a remarkable cast of women. Francesco and Antoine's mothers fed and clothed their large families, did the housework required without any labour-saving equipment and still found time to earn extra money by various means.
Mama Paolina had a head for finance and first saved the money required to buy the tickets on a ship to allow her family to emigrate and then managed to ensure that they would eventually buy their own land on the Cap d'Antibes. Antoine's mother insisted that all four her children complete at least primary school and continued to do the work of two women with one hand the other was amputated when she was a child until she was well into her eighties.
Claudia and Marie-Elizabeth Francesco's wife were indefatigable. Marie-Elizabeth started working a 72 hour working week ironing clothes when she was She also worked in the perfumeries in Grasse, her home town, carrying jasmine flowers. Claudia managed a household from about the age of She would pick flowers and vegetables every day to sell at the local market, then come home to do the housework and still found time to manage the administration of her father and later her husband's business.
Both women kept the businesses going through WW1 by themselves, saving what roses they could and mainly planting vegetables. My respect for all the women involved in these families grew like the roses they knew and loved. The story is well written and evokes the time period from the late 's to the 's as experienced by these rose growing families beautifully. Jan 05, Kym Andrews rated it liked it. Odd writing style, one I didn't like. However the family history and the effort and years required to create a new rose, was fascinating. Sep 15, Corianne Rice rated it it was amazing.
This charming story about the family who developed the Peace Rose is a real treat. The story spans from Feb 24, Rene Nel added it.

I loved the way you get to know the families and individuals. The passion, love and hard work that goes into creating roses is amazing. The women in the families were equally amazing. The work ethic of all the family members and their love and support of one another was inspiring. I will never look at a rose again the same way. I hope to one day see the roses that were created by these fascinating dedicated men. Dec 26, Irene rated it really liked it.
This is a book I have had for probably 15 years and always had the intention of reading. Well that day arrived and I have read it at last.
It is a wonderful story of families, the two main ones being, the Meillands and the Paolinos. They were both major rose growers and the two families became joined by marriage.
