Breeding history

The French nursery "Meiland" became the birthplace of the most famous variety "Gloria Dei". The gardener Joseph Rambeau, who had a special love for roses, gave rise to a business that became the work of a lifetime. He was continued by his daughter, son-in-law and grandson Francis. It was he who, in 1935, raised 50 hybrids from seeds brought from the United States. Examining the flowers that had just blossomed, the young breeder noticed a pink-yellow specimen. On the seedling, two of the three buds died. The famous "Gloria Day" emerged from the third.

During this period, the plant did not yet have the status and registered name, but it was very popular, it was sent from the nursery to many countries on the orders of breeders and gardeners. The established ties were disrupted by the war that began in 1939 and swept across Europe. Rose in different states gave their names. In her homeland she was named "Madame Meilland" (Mine A. Meilland), the Italians gave the name - "Delight" (Gioia), in Germany - "Glory to God" (Gloria Dei), in the USA - "Peace" (Peace). The rose was delivered to the USSR under the name "Gloria Day".

She became a symbol of peace - she survived a harsh time, flowers were presented at the UN Assembly in 1945. The variety has often won awards at competitions and exhibitions.

Reviews of hybrid tea rose Gloria Day Climing

Many gardeners note the unique characteristics and versatility of the Gloria Day Climing rose in their reviews, descriptions and photos.

Moskalenko Nina, 75 years old, Kozelsk

I bought three Gloria Day roses two years ago. One of them did not start, the other two turned out to be not bush, but climbing. I was even delighted with this circumstance, especially since it turned out to be easy to create support for the plants, and the landing site was chosen well. The bush looks just gorgeous - the flowering is so abundant that the support is not visible. And although it starts very late, it lasts until mid-September.

Orekhova Svetlana, 54 years old, Tula

I ordered the Gloria Day Climing rose seedlings in a specialized online store. I received them in the fall, and immediately planted them. Unfortunately, one specimen did not survive the winter - the frosts were strong, and the snow did not fall. In the summer, the second seedling bloomed, long shoots grew. The flowers are very beautiful, delicate, large. In the first year, support was not needed, and in the second they built an arch on which the rose looks great.
