A world-renowned rose grower from the Midlands is saying it with flowers by launching two new varieties named after Royal bride Kate Middleton.
Delighted staff at David Austin Roses said the new English roses were their “personal tribute” to Prince William and the future queen, who get married next month at Westminster Abbey.
The striking raspberry pink cut rose, Kate, will be exclusively available from the family-run nurseries in Albrighton.
And in May, the rose breeder will celebrate another exclusive when it presents the new English Rose garden shrub William and Catherine at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Mr Austin’s son, also called David and managing director of the company, said: “We are delighted to add this exquisite new rose to our portfolio of cut flowers. We have named it Kate as a tribute to the happy couple. We are expecting it to become a firm favourite with brides.”
