Soft orange-red buds open to medium-sized, cupped rosettes of perfect apricot colouring. They are produced almost continuously, are extremely robust and have a lovely medium strength Tea fragrance with leafy elements and dark fruit notes. Very healthy; it forms an attractive, rounded, bushy head of growth with mid green foliage and few thorns. Named to mark the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth, with the approval of his wife, Liccy Dahl – the colouring reminiscent of the eponymous peach in James and the Giant Peach. Sales of this rose raised £100,000 for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.
