Ena Harkness Rose

Harkness Masterpiece Collection®

Rose Description:

There are some good reasons to grow the dear old Ena Harkness rose (introduced 1946). The colour is still a very good red, but it will fade with a blue tinge in hot sunshine (unlike modern varieties like Carris). The perfume is evocative of all good things, nothing short of a joy. The flower hangs down, the plant is  sparse and disease resistance is low. As one of the quintessential roses of the late 20th Century it still has a place.

Masterpiece Collection®

Philip Harkness: "I love roses for the beautiful colours and perfumes. All of the rose varieties I have selected for the Masterpiece Collection ® are strong, healthy and easy to grow in any garden".
