[From the American Rose, November 1998, p. 16:] Diana, Princess of Wales was unveiled at a ceremonial planting at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., in the summer of 1998. Developed by Keith Zary of Jackson & Perkins, the rose is described as classic in form with ivory petals overlaid with a clear pink blush... [there's a photo of the rose in this issue as well] Offered in limited quantities only in North America, the rose will sell for $24.95 exclusively through the Jackson & Perkins catalog. A donation of 15% of the retail price for each rose will be donated to The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund... The rose will not be sold in England to avoid competition with The Princess of Wales rose.
