Coronation Street Rose

Samia Ghadie (our Maria Sutherland) and Alan Halsall (our Tyrone Dobbs) are unveiling a new rose today at the Southport Flower Show. The ‘Coronation Street Rose’ is a red floribunda created in honour of ITV’s 50th anniversary.

Orders can now be placed for delivery of the rose next spring.

To order a rose, priced £10 plus postage and packing, email or write to Coronation Street Rose, Southport Flower Show, Victoria Park, Southport, PR8 2BZ.

Inquiring Corrie Canuck minds wonder if they recited Ken Barlow’s ode to Deirdre at the launch….

A rose by any other name but Deirdre is not a rose at all
A shoulder to cry on
And beneath, two arms to steer me
My safety net to catch me lest I fall
My north, my east, my south and west
My safety buoy, my life vest
I close my eyes and sniff her heady scent
For yes, a rose by any other name but Deirdre
Surely is not a rose at all.
