Mild. There *is* a scent, but it's not the main attraction. There are
two big pluses (three if you count the vividness of the colors, which
just POP in the sunlight). The first is the substance of the blooms.
They last for several weeks, are very sturdy and have a long vase
life. The other is the same virtue that Joseph's Coat has, and that's
the incredible variety of colors and the change of said colors as the
bloom matures. Plus, different blooms on the same plant mature
differently with different shades of color.Even a bloom in the final
days is incredible. Here's an example of 2 third season plants in full
blown mode (and this is after me taking a few choice blooms). The
cluster of three in the front are in the final stages of life. They
have a couple of days left, and they are the most outrageous
red/orange Hawaiian sunset color ever.


Well, that makes the decision for me. Desert Peace will go on the hill
while Barbra Streisand will go by the living room window. Scent wins in
this case. As to those who know my love for scent and wonder why I'm
interested in the Peace rose, well, Chicago Peace was my very first rose
way, way back when. I don't want another Chicago Peace but wanted
something in the family so Desert Peace won.

Sounds reasonable to me.

If you have room (which I'm guessing you don't), you should consider
the plant that Theo mentioned - Felicia. Now *that's* a scent factory.
You can smell it a mile away (not literally of course). It's not
particularly useful for cutting, although you can get a couple of vase
days out of it. But when it's in full bloom, it looks and smells
beautiful. And it blooms much of the time as well (obviously not like
the first flush).

You need about an 8ft. X 8 ft. footprint for it as it's a freely
arching plant.

Wait 'till they get a load of Desert Peace. Talk about riotous...all
on the same bloom mind you.

I can tell you, I like fancy Desert Peace Granada softer, but this is my personal opinion, of course. I can see that other people may prefer to show off and bonuses through subtle.
