Liverpool Hope - New Rose introduction 2019
On its 175th Anniversary year, Liverpool Hope University renews its commitment to being a ‘garden campus’ that brings beauty into the daily lives of students and staff. Beautiful grounds, vibrant flowered gardens and striking water features are an important part of both its campuses in Liverpool.
Hope is the only university included in Tim Richardson’s book ‘The New English Garden’, the definitive survey of this country’s most significant gardens, for the remarkable grounds of its Creative Campus. Indeed being a garden campus is even written into Hope’s corporate plan, and that is why the unique creation of a rose bearing the University’s name is so important. Providing academic excellence for the students of tomorrow remains at the core of Liverpool Hope University’s mission, as it marks the date of the first of its three founding colleges in 1844.
"The new Liverpool Hope rose with its gold and peach clustered petals will be an eye-catching addition to our beautiful grounds and our Literary Rose Garden. The rose’s gold colour resonates for me because it reflects success, and we always strive for scholarly excellence here." - Vice Chancellor Professor Gerald Pillay.
"We are delighted to be naming this beautiful rose for such a prestigious university especially in their celebratory year. ‘Liverpool Hope’ features prominently within the university’s beautiful garden campus and symbolizes the university's core commitment to the wellbeing of all their students." - Ian Limmer, Nursery Manager of Peter Beales Roses.
