Papworth’s Pride (‘Beamelon’) produces clusters of large raspberry-red, peony-like flowers that unfold to reveal bright yellow anthers. Intensely perfumed with bright glossy mid-green foliage, growing to an approximate height of 5ft (150cm).
This year marks the centenary anniversary of the Papworth Trust, a charity dedicated to giving disabled people the very best opportunity to live, work and raise a family as independently as possible.
The introduction of this rose is hoped to be enjoyed by garden lovers and charity supporters. A magnet for wildlife, they make a stunning display if planted en masse; equally, if grown in large container this exquisite rose makes a real statement. With an intense perfume, it is an ideal rose for a patio area.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
