NEW FOR 2013! Francis Meilland™ is a tall Hybrid Tea rose with a very large bloom and strong fragrance.  Created by Francis Meilland’s own daughter, Michou, it is only fitting that this new rose bears the name of the legendary breeder of the Peace Rose. A multiple award winner in Europe, it is the first Hybrid Tea rose to win the prestigious ADR contest in Germany where roses are observed for 2 years under no spray conditions.

  2013 AARS winner.
