TOGETHER FOREVER (Dicecho) 2006            £10.00

This rose has been named by Mrs. Christine Royle of Leigh in Lancashire in memory of her late parents who enjoyed a long and happy marriage and also to celebrate her own marriage.  Her mother died in August ‘04, the same month in which Mrs. Royle was married and she felt the timing was perfect to name a rose.  We feel she has made an excellent choice in the name!

WB YEATS (Dicoodles) 2015                   £10.00


Last year a brand new rose was making its debut in one of Ireland’s most beautiful but least known counties - Sligo. Secret Gardens of Sligo, an open-garden charity scheme on Ireland’s north west coast, has teamed up with The Yeats Society to launch this Irish-bred rose being named for the world-famous writer, WB Yeats.


2015 marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of this Nobel Prize winning poet, and events honouring Yeats took place all over the world. The new rose, which is an initiative of Yeats 2015, provides a wonderful opportunity to bring Yeats alive in a new way. The ‘WB Yeats’ rose is a living, lasting horticultural legacy to one of Ireland’s literary giants – a visual celebration of him in gardens and parks, in private and public spaces far and wide .


The rose is a scarlet floribunda with bright golden stamens, the individual blooms on its multi-headed stems opening semi-flat to form a spectacular show. This disease-resistant variety has won a Gold Medal from the RNRS, and a Certificate of Merit from the Hague International Rose Trials.


The new rose is being funded by public donation, the appeal coordinated by Lorely Forrester of Secret Gardens of Sligo. She has called on rose-lovers and Yeats fans alike to help make this tribute to WB Yeats a reality. To contribute towards the cost and to become a Friend of the Yeats Rose, please go to www.secretgardensofsligo.com for more details.
