A fine old Edwardian house in Fairfield, an inner Melbourne suburb. Sitting on a sizeable block of land, enough for a decent front and back garden, this type of house is under threat of development... Many such houses have been demolished and in their place anything between 4-6 units have been built, overcrowding the neighbourhoods, increasing noise levels, traffic congestion, pollution and placing increasing demands on already heavily utilised infrastructure.
Let's stop and smell the roses while we still can... These beauties are Hybrid Tea, Rosa 'Pink Peace'. Very fragrant and perfect for cut flowers, as well as being a vigorous and heat resistant garden favourite. Hybridised by Meilland in 1959, an oldie but a goody!
