This is the new Peace Rose Booklet of 20.
The stamp art features a photograph of a beautiful Peace rose blossom. The close-up shows details of the creamy yellow petals touched at the edges with pink.
Development of what was to become the Peace rose began with a famous rose-breeding family in mid-1930s France. In 1935, the Meilland family had crossbred hundreds of roses hoping to create new commercially viable varieties. One of the crosses yielded a unique bloom with yellow petals delicately edged with pink, which they named Madame A. Meilland.
Peace has become one of the most popular roses in history. It revolutionized hybrid tea roses with its unique coloring, hardiness, and disease resistance. Peace has been the parent of hundreds of popular hybrids, and millions of the original variety have been planted in gardens worldwide.
