Rose Named in honour of Stephen Fry
Stephen’s Rose, introduced by Norfolk rose grower Bill LeGrice, has a mass of distinctive, wavy edged, single flowers in a splendid mix of yellow and creamy red. It’s a strong growing, strongly scented, floribunda bush rose.
On seeing his new rose for the first time, Stephen Fry said -
“I think it’s fair to say that there is nothing that makes an English cheek glow and an English heart flutter so much as that of having a rose named in their honour. And what a rose is this. A shape so bold yet fragile, so confident yet shy ... and the colours! I am swooning and drooling with pleasure. You may touch me, smell me, grow me and pick me but please always respect and thank those who bred me.”
