  • Description

    A rose of more modern character than most English Roses. The flowers start as small buds, opening to full petalled, wide open rosettes of a bright, deep pink. As the flowers age, the blooms becomes dome-shaped while the colour - unusually for the English Roses - gradually intensifies. The flowers are 2 ᄑ to 3 inches across and are produced very freely; having a light, rather 'green' fragrance. 'Sir John Betjeman's' flowering period is particularly long, with it still blooming when all of the other roses have given up.

  • Origin of Name

    Betjeman's daughter, Mrs Candida Lycett Green and The Betjeman Society asked us to name this rose after the well-known writer, journalist and broadcaster. He also opened people’s eyes to the value of the buildings and landscape around them. At the time of his death, in 1984, he held the post of Poet Laureate and is commemorated in Poet's Corner in Westminster Abbey.
