Holly and Phillip launch the This Morning Rose at Chelsea Flower Show
It’s a gorgeous flower. I’m a hopeless gardener but I would love a This Morning rose in my garden!

To celebrate This Morning's 30th birthday year, Holly and Phillip are unveiling a new rose called This Morning at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Phillip says: “We are proud and honoured to have a rose named after us at This Morning. It’s an iconic show to work on, and Chelsea Flower show is the quintessential flower show too, so what a perfect setting!”
Holly adds: “It’s a gorgeous flower. I’m a hopeless gardener but I would love a This Morning rose in my garden. Plus they’re good for the bees and I can’t wait for our This Morning bees to have a taste. It will make our This Morning honey even sweeter, I’m sure!”
The flower, which was selected by David Domoney to celebrate our 30th anniversary, is a fragrant pink rose produced in association with Harkness Roses.
David, who has presented gardening for us for over a decade, explains that the bloom is a dusky pink colour with a deep, dark burgundy spot at the centre. It has a 'light spicy perfume' and yellow stamens which are perfect for attracting bees.
PLEASE NOTE: For now, the This Morning roses will be given to special recipients, but we hope you'll be able to buy them in the future!
