Sales of the RSL Rose assist in raising much needed funds to assist returned veterans and their families through support programs administered by the RSL nationally.

The concept of an RSL Rose was originally proposed by the family of the late Robert ‘Bob’ Brown, a long term member the Returned and Services League (RSL).

This initiative of having a dedicated rose was enthusiastically taken up by the Morwell RSL community who have guided this project, with the assistance of the Victorian State Branch. Quite fittingly, Morwell is home to Victoria’s Centenary Rose Garden.

The striking tones of regal burgundy and soft amber make this rose a standout in any garden. Mirroring the colours of dawn and dusk, each classic shaped bud opens to produce an informal, petal filled flower borne on long stems, ideal for cutting.

The bush is continuously in bloom, well rounded and clothed in glossy deep green foliage. Carrying a light rose perfume, this rose looks brilliant planted singly, in large groups or in pots. A hardy and healthy plant. Approx. height: 1.5m
