The RHS Chelsea Show officially opened today. At the Press Day yesterday a rose named “Liverpool Hope” was unveiled to the public at the ‘gold award’ Peter Beales’ Rose Display.
Peter Beales Roses has over almost three years collaborated with the university to develop a rose to mark the 175th anniversary of the University. Hope is the only university included in Tim Richardson’s book ‘The New English Garden’, the definitive survey of this country’s most significant recent gardens, for the remarkable grounds of its Creative Campus.
Indeed being a garden campus is even written into Hope’s corporate plan, which is why the unique creation of a rose bearing the University’s name is so important.
During its 175th Anniversary year, Liverpool Hope University has renewed its commitment to being a ‘garden campus’ that brings beauty into the daily lives of students and staff.
The gold-coloured flower, which will be officially unveiled on campus at Hope’s mid-summer celebration on June 28, took pride of place at Peter Beales’ display at the internationally-renowned event in West London.
