‘Princess Anne’ is an exciting new development from an entirely new line in breeding. Whilst it retains the classic full-petalled flowers of an English Rose, its overall character is very different from any other rose we know giving it its own very special beauty. The young flowers are deep pink, almost red, gradually fading to a pure deep pink as the blooms mature. The petals are rather narrow and unusually substantial with a pleasing hint of yellow on their undersides. The flowers are produced over a long period and held in large clusters; the individual blooms opening in succession. There is a medium-strong tea rose fragrance. Very healthy.

A compact shrub with bushy, upright growth; it ideal for borders or hedging. The thick, succulent, highly polished foliage is remarkably resistant to disease. It is also an excellent choice for landscaping projects.

We were honoured to name this after the Her Royal Highness, the Princess Royal who is patron of Riding for the Disabled. The charity offers opportunities for therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities.

It was named ‘Best New Plant Variety’ at the UK Grower of the Year Awards in 2011.
