Dame Deborah James Rose

The stunning new white rose variety from The Harkness Rose Company, renowned British rose breeders since 1879, has been named in honour of Dame Deborah James. Deborah, also known as Bowelbabe, was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2016 and heartbreakingly announced last week that she had stopped active treatment and was receiving hospice-at-home care. Capturing the hearts of the nation with her determination to raise money and awareness, Deborah has since raised more than £6 million for the Bowelbabe Fund for Cancer Research UK and personally received her Damehood from the Duke of Cambridge last Friday.

Dame Deborah was presented with a bouquet of her new rose earlier this week at her family home and commented: “What a stunning rose to be named after me. Roses are my favourite flowers and I hope this one will brighten the smiles for all”.

£2.50p from the sale of each Dame Deborah James Rose will be paid to Bowelbabe Fund for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK is a registered charity No: 1089464 in England and Wales, SC041666 in Scotland and 1103 in the Isle of Man and 247 in Jersey.
