2014 New Releases Ross Roses.
'Red Cross'. The Australian Red Cross Organisation celebrates their Centenary this year. Founded in 1914 immediately following the outbreak of World War 1. For over one hundred years millions of people have been helped through their willing volunteers who readily give caring support when there is a need. Australia thanks them for their dedication when fire, flood, or disaster hits. To commemorate a century of their humanitarian service a special release of the 'Australian Red Cross' rose is offered by Ross Roses. This glowing rich red rose has an outstanding fragrance, and is instantly appealing. A Hybrid tea rose borne on long stems for picking yet freely produced on a neat bush growth 1.2 metres tall. Red Cross branch members around Australia, together with Councils, will celebrate by planting this rose in their communities and public parks. Available from Ross Roses.... and leading Garden centres.

The 1980s. A unique marketing plan was introduced in Australia by Deane Ross during the mid 1980s. He initiated the idea to name a new rose for charities, schools and community groups to assist in their fundraising. The first rose was 'Jubilee 150' in 1986 for Rotary Clubs Community Service. Since then communities and groups have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through these Charity Roses (sometimes known as Cause Roses). Successful projects were 'Zonta Rose' (Zonta International); 'Red Cross' (Australian Rose Cross); '65 Roses' (Cystic Fibrosis); 'Courage' (Canteen); 'Spirit of Peace' (R.S.L.); 'Wildfire' (Emergency Fire Services); 'Howard Florey' (Medical Research) and 'The Children's Rose' (Children's Hospital).
