  • Origin of Name

    This variety was named with the approval of Roald Dahl's wife, Felicity Dahl, to highlight Roald's love of gardening. The colour of the rose immediately brought to mind the eponymous peach in James and the Giant Peach, one of Roald Dahl's best-loved novels. £5.50 from the sale of each rose will be donated to Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, which helps make life better for seriously ill children in the UK. Registered charity in England and Wales number 1137409.
