‘Margaret Greville’ and ‘Papworth’s Pride’ from Peter Beales are two versatile shrub roses.

Margret Greville is pink and can be grown as a hedge, in a tub, or as a cascading shrub.

The raspberry-red, peony style flowers produced on ‘Papworth’s Pride’ can be planted en masse or grown in large container.

The National Trust property Polesden Lacey has commissioned Margaret Greville, named after the former owner of the Surrey Estate who bequeathed the estate and its contents to the Trust in 1942.

This year marks the centenary anniversary of the Papworth Trust, a charity dedicated to giving disabled people the best opportunity to live, work and raise a family as independently as possible.

Nursery manager Ian Limmer said: "We are thrilled to be introducing these two beautiful roses for Polseden Lacey and the Papworth Trust, honouring and celebrating both Margaret Greville and the Papworth Trust with these lovely roses is a fitting tribute and we are delighted to be adding them to our collection."
