Hybridized by Archer; Year of Registration or Introduction: 1925
Almost every year, the first rose to bloom in my garden is a Dainty Bess rose that is 20 years old. I planted it in a bed along the south wall of my home in the spring of 1991, and it has been a reliable bloomer every year. If it holds true to its performance in years past, it will bloom three or four times before frost.
I like it for its single layer of petals and its sweet true pink color.
I hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Tomorrow is also a day.
