The Born Free ‘The Lion’ Rose is a stunning floribunda shrub of vibrant apricot and orange tones. Launched to celebrate the 90th birthday of Virginia McKenna and the exceptional work of the Born Free Foundation. This rose is the perfect colour to symbolise lions in the wild.
It is a wonderful combination of old and new reminiscent of traditional English roses with a strong perfume to match, yet this is a modern rose with incredible disease resistance, dense foliage, and an abundance of flowers. The orange blooms are pure and sharp in colour, plentiful in quantity and have the most enchanting fragrance. Ideal for beds, borders, pots and containers.
£2.50 from every sale will be donated to the Born Free Foundation (Charity No 1070906).
