This new and exclusive rose to Fryer’s Roses and the Blue Diamond group, is named after Sarah.

The “Sarah Elizabeth” rose is a delicate pink colour, with contrasting dark green foliage. The rose is a highly fragrant floribunda with a bushy habit, good disease resistance and grows to a height of approximately 100cm. £1 from every "Sarah Elizabeth" rose sold through Blue Diamond and Fryer's Roses online will be donated to the Sarah Groves Foundation, which we are extremely appreciative of.

The new roses will be available to buy from Stand FR 568 at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. I will shortly also be available for purchase online by visiting www.fryersroses.co.uk or by telephoning Fryer’s Roses direct on 01565 755455.

The rose will also be available to buy from any Blue Diamond Garden Centre from April 2019 onwards priced at £17.99 (potted rose) and whilst stocks last. Bare root roses can be purchased at a cost of £12 per rose (excluding delivery). Potted roses are £17.99 per rose (excluding delivery). Delivery charges apply. Please see Fryer's Roses website for details. Bare root roses will be dispatched from November 2018 onwards. Potted roses are available to buy now whilst stocks last, otherwise can be ordered now to be dispatched from April 2019.

Fryers Roses of Knutsford in Cheshire (the town from which the Groves' moved to Guernsey as a family in 1996), which is part of our local Blue Diamond Group, have brought the rose to market following three years of discussion. We are hugely indebted to our very good friends here in Guernsey, Geoff and Jenny Dorey, for supporting this initiative throughout.
