Rose Harry Wheatcroft

By pamelajean
This is the hybrid tea rose Harry Wheatcroft, a flamboyant red and yellow rose bearing the name of the famous English rose grower, a larger than life character with a huge handlebar moustache, and whose rose is equally unusual.

I was intrigued to find that several of his roses were used to decorate Paragon and Royal Standard teaware.

I was delighted with the response to my garden windmill in the snow, and glad so many of you joined in the quiz.

Stunning! Superb! Gong! (That was easy!) 😀 👍 🏆
Like you I well remember Harry Wheatcroft a luxuriantly bewhiskered cove whose face often appeared on local TV adverts. To the best of my knowledge Wheatcroft's Rose Nurseries (or probably Garden Centre as it will be now be called) is still on the south side of Nottingham.
All the best Pam and take care, G. 😀
