Francis Meilland®


A true hybridizing breakthrough from the very talented hands of Jacques Mouchotte…a Hybrid Tea with the black spot cleanliness of Knock Out® but the classic shape and alluring fragrance everyone recognizes as a real rose. Tall and stately, Francis will show off his shapely soft pink blossoms atop long stems with abundant glossy green leaves. Named to honor the 100th birthday of the breeder of the famous Peace rose.
