Harkness has announced that it will be launching its Mary Berry Rose at this year?s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
A company spokesperson said: ?It will be a great pleasure to name this stunningly beautiful new Hybrid Tea bush rose after Mary Berry at Chelsea Flower Show 2016. Mary is a keen gardener and rose lover as well, as an inspiration for millions in the kitchen.
?Mary Berry absolutely adores her bed of Chandos Beauty, and is delighted that her new rose shares the same breeding line, indeed they have the same father. She has inherited a large sumptuous bloom with a sweet, rich and strong perfume. The colour varies subtly with the seasons and weather.?
The spokesperson continued: ?As the flowers open they include shades, from a rich Devon cream to light golden yellow in autumn flowering. The buds are rounded and plump, displaying a spiral of petals, gently reflexing outwards showing a more intense colour as the bloom opens.
?The plant possess wonderfully robust and vigorous growth providing masses of repeat blooms throughout the season and is clothed in large dark green leaves that resist disease?.
