New Rose Honours Diana, Princess of Wales
Jackson & Perkins Rose Officially Approved by The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and the Princess of Wales’ Estate.

Jackson & Perkins, the world’s largest producer of roses, announced the development of a new rose in honour of Diana, Princess of Wales. Named the "Diana, Princess of Wales rose," it carries the approval of the Princess’ Estate and the Fund established in her memory.

Fifteen percent of theRose Diana Princess of Wales retail purchase price from the sale of each rose will be donated to The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, the London-based organization established to carry on the legacy of the Princess, charitable work.

The new rose was officially debuted during a ceremonial planting in the rose garden at the British Embassy in Washington D.C. with Lady Meyer, wife of the British Ambassador, planting the rose and being presented a bouquet of the new rose.

The Diana, Princess of Wales rose is a classic hybrid tea. Its ivory petals are overlaid with a clear pink blush, and the large, elegantly-shaped buds open into graceful, full flowers with impeccable form and a sweet fragrance. The long stems make it a perfect cutting flower.
