Dainty Bess

Introduced in 1925 by Wm. E.B. Archer & Daughter
Surely, this rose has been hand painted again and again onto china. Its pink blooms with deeper reverse are made memorable by the purple stamens. The simplicity and fragrance are what win us and this rose retains its popularity today. It's parentage is 'Ophelia' and 'Kitchener of Khartoumn'. It is leggy, very upright and light of cane. Looks lovely with lavender growing at its knees.
Plants in this crop, though ready for shipping, haven’t bloomed, so the identity of this rose is not yet verified.

Should the identity turn out to be incorrect on an unverified rose, our policy is to refund the price of the rose or replace the plant, at no charge for the rose, when we do have verified plants. However, we cannot refund shipping or handling on unverified roses. And shipping and handling will be charged when replacing unverified roses.
We hope that this policy will allow our customers to receive their roses as soon as possible while also helping us meet the expense of keeping so many varieties of rare species, antique, and exceptional modern roses available.
