Kew Southbourne Rose

The collection has its own unique story: the pattern draws upon two small sketchbooks from Kew’s collection, illustrated by artist Adrienne A. Nash. The books illustrate roses in various stages of growth, from bud to full flower. These were painted at her home during the 1960s in Southbourne Gardens, Eastcote, Ruislip.

A heritage brand and treasured British icon, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and world-leader in plant science conservation. Elegant florals and colourful garden wildlife bloom and flutter across designs, making perfect pieces for the home and ideal gifts. To browse the collection click here.
