This holidays it was my pleasure to photograph a very special new cultivar of rose, the Clea Rose.

To help raise awareness & funds the Clea Rose has been developed by Ross & Francis in conjunction with the National Brain Injury Foundation in memory of their daughter Clea Rose.  Clea was killed by an underage driver in  a hit and run accident during a police pursuit in 2005.  As well as being a beautiful pink/apricot rose, it has the most delightful sent, it’s a shame there is no “smellovision” on the internet yet.  Look out for the Clea Rose’s release soon.
