A rose inspired by sunsets over a Suffolk river has made its debut at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Notcutts, a garden centre business with a branch in Norwich, has launched the creamy-yellow coloured rose at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to celebrate the life of horticulturist Charles Notcutt, whose family founded and still run the firm.
The 'Deben Sunrise' rose is named after Charles' favourite view over the River Deben from his garden in Woodbridge,
Caroline Notcutt, Mr Notcutt's daughter and vice chairman of the firm, said: 'I am delighted that my father's unrivalled passion for gardening and outstanding contribution to the horticultural community has been recognised with this wonderful rose.
'It is very special, particularly in Notcutts 120th anniversary year, and I hope it will continue to bring joy to his fellow gardening enthusiasts for many years to come.'
