Comments There is an informal elegance to the wavy - petalled flowers. It has probably been superceded by other Harkness roses including Rosemary Harkness, Livin' Easy, and Easy Going. Interestingly, the rose was given this moniker to help improve the visibility ofthe brand of writing paper by the same name; but today Google finds the paper but not the rose.
