A new rose is to be named after Dame Judi Dench at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May [2017].


Grower David Austin Roses will honour the star of stage and screen by unveiling a new shrub rose that bears rich-apricot blooms.

The fragrance of Rosa ‘Dame Judi Dench’ is described as “medium-strong, combining classic tea with a note of cucumber and a hint of kiwi”.

It will cost £19.95 for a bare-root rose or £24.94 for a potted rose.
