ROSE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
THE MERCY ROSE Supports THE MERCY SHIPS
Mercy Ships UK has released a new ‘Mercy Rose’ potted plant which is now available to buy.
Proceeds from the sales of the potted plant will go towards funding the world’s largest charity hospital ship that provides free medical care and humanitarian aid to the poorest countries in Africa.
The launch of the potted plant follows the success of the initial Mercy Rose bare root plant which was launched last year in August.
These unique pale pink roses have been developed over time to provide a floribunda bush rose that blooms from June to late autumn. A cluster of up to nine buds reveal delicate shell-pink flowers with a fresh, spicy perfume. The Mercy Rose potted plant is now available from Mercy Ships and costs £11.95.
The Mercy Rose is grown by Harkness, specialist rose growers for over 130 years. Funds raised from the sale of the Mercy Rose help pay for the medical care provided on board the Africa Mercy which is currently finishing a six-month field service in Togo, West Africa.
