Planting of Jane Austen Rose

On Monday 30th October, a new Jane Austen rose, bred by Harkness Roses, was planted by Alan Titchmarsh in the garden at the Jane Austen House Museum in Chawton. The rose is a floribunda, and the flowers, said to possess a fruity perfume, are coloured a rich orange in the centre petals, and creamy toward the outer edges. It is said to complement the Pride and Prejudice rose, also bred by Harkness.
