Bessie is a French vanilla-colored English garden rose. She has a symmetrical cup shape with 100 petals carefully furled inside. She is a consistent opener and will open 90 percent, forming a strikingly large rose that is sure to attract interest. She has a light floral scent. Bessie looks like a blend of Leonora and Juliet – most of Juliet’s color with most of Leonora’s shape.
