A stunning white rose variety from The Harkness Rose Company, renowned British rose breeders since 1879. This lightly fragranced bush rose has been named in honour of Dame Deborah James.
“Your legacy is planting seeds that you will never see flower. Your legacy is knowing that you’ve done better for the next generation. Your legacy is having the rebellious hope that the actions you take today will create a better society tomorrow.” - Dame Deborah James
Dame Deborah James was a bright, brilliant and beautiful campaigner for people affected by cancer. She encouraged us all to always have rebellious hope – the determination to remain hopeful, even when it might seem like there is nothing to be hopeful for.
In December 2016, age 35, Deborah was diagnosed with incurable bowel cancer. Her first instinct was to shout from the rooftops about cancer, raising awareness and raising money for research.
Supplied as an established rose in a 5 litre pot.
£2.50p from the sale of each Dame Deborah James Rose will be paid to Bowelbabe Fund for Cancer Research UK.
