A gold medal for 'National Collections Everywhere and for Everyone' at RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival

3rd July, 2024

Plant Heritage showcases National Plant Collections Everywhere and for Everyone, asking people 'What is your Plant Passion?' A feature of Missing Collections highlighting 15 pollinator friendly plants is also on display. 

Alongside the Plant Heritage display are displays from National Plant Collections. Daniel Myhill's display of Rosa persica won a Gold medal and the best display in the Plant Heritage zone, Rubus from Barry Clarke was awarded a Silver Gilt, Hosta (miniature and small) from Hogarth Hostas was awarded a Gold medal and Pinus from Sir Harold Hillier Gardens a Silver medal. 

On Daniel Myhill's display of Rosa persica a new Rosa persica 'SEE YOU in Rose' was launched. See pictures below.

As always, Plant Heritage’s popular seed shop (volunteer run) is full of interesting seeds for a donation to the charity, and the public can choose their favourite Threatened Plant for 2024 too.

A 'name this hosta' competition, with a large leaved hosta from Sienna Hosta allows you to choose a name for this striking hosta, with donations in support of Platn Heritage.

So do come and visit our display at RHS Hampton - there's plenty to see and we'd love to say 'hello'. 

Launch of a new persica rose hybrid at RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival

A brand-new persica rose is launched at the world-renowned flower show by National Plant Collection Holder Daniel Myhill, a first-time exhibitor whose display will be in the Plant Heritage zone. The beautiful new ‘SEE YOU in rosé’ has already won awards, and now thanks to a collaboration between Daniel, Kordes Roses and plant retailer Marshalls Garden, it’s the first persica hybrid release in the UK from the celebrated breeder Kordes Roses. Growing to about 70cm tall and 50cm wide, this pretty-in-pink persica rose has open, semi-double flowers with a deep reddish pink eye, perfect for a range of pollinators. It can be pre-ordered as bare root from Marshalls Garden this autumn, and a donation of £2 from every sale will made to Plant Heritage. Thank you.
