'Dainty Bess' is an exquisitely beautiful rose from the 1920's. The rose has charming single blooms and an elegant stature. The silky pink petals are sensitive to light, opening and closing over the stamens, in a way that is reminiscent of a prayer plant. They used to advertise this rose as THE ARTISTIC ROSE. 'Dainty Bess' blooms in clusters or singly. Harkness stated that their light pink petals are the, "backdrop for dusty heads and purple legs of its chorus of stamens". The rose displays the height of old Hybrid Tea refinement, the bush is full and somewhat Tea-like.
