During our 50th Anniversary year in 2008, a beautiful new variety of rose was named in our honour – The FAB at 50 rose.
The FAB at 50 rose, as you can see from the photographs, is simply stunning. It is a beautiful apricot colour and has a slight, but not overpowering scent. It’s a healthy and robust floribunda and will grow to around 80cm (about 32 inches). To top it all, the rose will flower repeatedly throughout the season, so its beauty can be enjoyed for many weeks. It will make a perfect gift for someone celebrating their 50th birthday or a couple marking their golden wedding anniversary – or simply anyone you think is ‘fab’.
The FAB at 50 rose will look fantastic flowering in your garden and, when cut, it can be used to create a beautiful arrangement or table centrepiece in your home.
For each rose sold, a donation will be made to FAB, so you can spoil yourself or a friend, enhance a garden and help cats all at the same time. The plants are available either with bare roots or potted. Buying three at one time will give you substantial savings and means that you can keep one for yourself and still have two to give away – what a great Christmas present the rose would make!
To order the rose please download the order form and return to the World of Roses.
Each rose will come with instructions on preparing the ground, planting and pruning to ensure that it provides years of pleasure.
