The Rainbows4children rose now available!

A rose like no other…

This beautiful intense yellow rose has an exquisite perfume with light citrus accents.  It starts as a classic bud, maturing to a wide circular flower offering a bouquet of blooms that flourish throughout the season. It is highly disease-resistant and tolerant of most conditions. For preference, it enjoys a position with the early morning sun.

What makes it special:

Every purchase of a rainbows4children rose will help secure the future of a child.

The Rainbows4children rose was created to reflect the innocence, resilience, and beauty of children. The Rainbows4children Foundation  educates the most disadvantaged children in Northern Ethiopia with a purpose built eco-friendly school serving 1,380 students. 100% of all donations benefit the children directly.

Rainbows4children rose

It will be available for sale for planting from November 2016, onwards.

Donations from the sales of this rose will help fund the education of the poorest children in Mekele.

The rose is the result of a collaboration between Dominque Massad, rose-creator or “obteneur” and Jean-Pierre Dittiere, rose-grower.

Jean-Paul, Elizabeth, Kathryn, Dominique, Max

Dominique Massad’s family tree is like a climbing rose! Dominique quickly caught the creative virus and created his first hybrids in 1980. His scope is broad and includes old roses, from which he mixes the “old sap” in his new creations. Inspired by the work of Austin, an Englishman, Dominique marries the abundance of flowers and colours of modern roses to the forms and fragrances of older roses. He has created more than 170 rose varieties which are marketed and exported worldwide.

Jean-Pierre Dittière, rose grower and floriculturist from Anjou, has developed one of the most magnificent rose gardens, Les Chemins de la Rose, in Doué la Fontaine. Opened in 1999, it is a veritable conservatory of roses with more than 13,000 rose bushes, representing approximately 1,000, varieties on a plot of 4 hectares of land.  This huge floral park is also the ideal setting for the presentation of new creations from his own nursery.
