There are many roses in the Netherlands and not least in the Limburg area.

Yet, the Danish rose breeder Rosa Eskelund was asked to develop a new rose to celebrate the Rose Festival in Lottum.

Minister of Limburg Mr. Ger Koopmans, received a banner with the secret name brought to him by a drone, and the new rose was revealed and baptized in pink champagne in front of hundreds of rose interested people from both the Netherlands and Germany.

“We received many compliments on the rose and are very proud and grateful that we were asked for a rose to this occasion – and then in Holland,” says Harley and Rosa Eskelund.

Directly in this area of the Netherlands is the largest garden rose production and many producers from the area attended the baptism of the new Plant’n’relax® So much love™ rose, that is part of the series of healthy garden roses where the consumer simply can plant and relax. Just as the name says – Plant’n’relax.

Already now, Harley and Rosa Eskelund welcomed several requests for a license to grow the rose, that is easy to grow both budded or on own roots.
