I was looking for this gorgeous rose, too, and HMF only says that it was "introduced by Heirloom". Heirloom doesn't carry it now, though. Kim, can you help us? Is Peach Silk another one of those "poached" roses like Blue Bayou that suddenly disappears from the market as mysteriously as it appeared? Thanks for any help you can give us. Diane

Perhaps Heirloom still has a "mother" plant of it and may offer it in the future. Have you checked with them? It's a Clements rose so Heirloom is the origin.

Thanks Diane and Hoovb. I will give heirloom a call. I will search Clements roses too. Thanks, judy

I have one in my garden but I think I'm in a quarantine zone because of citrus disease/ pests. It was slow to start, but became a beauty over time. It has tall strong canes and has an upright growth that fills in shrubby.

I got a Peach Silk a long time ago from Heirloom when it was in their catalog. I liked it so much I asked about it - wanted 2 of them. They must have had them in inventory as they sent me the 2 roses in my order. They are now growing in large pots and I plan to plant them in the ground this winter. Ask and they will probably find one for you. See the other post on this rose - apparently they are available.

Hi Judith!! I started another post after talking with shawna at heirloom. Hopefully they will reproduce some more if we get enough people wanting one.
