For the first time in its history, Hever Castle, has its own rose. The Hever Castle Rose was launched by Dame Judi Dench, the award-winning British actress.
Bred by the highly regarded rose hybridiser, the late Colin Horner, the floribunda ‘Hever Castle Rose’ (Horquinsey) produces masses of velvety deep-red blooms which fade to cerise, offset by golden-yellow stamens. Growing to a height of 4-5ft, the blooms are complemented by attractive, glossy dark-green foliage. The Hever Castle Rose has a long flowering period from May to the first frosts in October and has proved itself resistant to disease in rose trials.
