The Mayor is a vintage pink and gold blend floribunda rose that will continue to bloom throughout the summer.
It has semi-double blooms that open to attract bees. The blooms have a light fragrance.
For each sale, £1 will be donated by Fryer’s Roses and Blue Diamond to charities nominated by the Mayor of Knutsford.
Mayor Neil Forbes said: "Fryer’s Roses plays a big part of Knutsford’s history, having been here since 1912, and we are delighted that Blue Diamond Garden Centres are so supportive of the town and will be donating £1 to the Mayors’ charities for every rose sold."
 
Bare root roses can be purchased at a cost of £12 per rose (excluding delivery). Potted roses are £17.99 per rose (excluding delivery). The rose will be available from Blue Diamond centres next year.
