Comments Its soft orange color is its chief attraction. It is not frequently true that orange roses go nicely with all sorts of soft pinks; but it seems to be true of Betty Harkness. Add to this the fact that the roses are fragrant, high centered, and nicely spaced about a pretty, shrubby plant, and you have a winning combination. Betty Harkness may not be the first rose to catch your eye in a garden, but when she has drawn you near, you will be happy she is there.
