Comments It bears large, single flowers in pink with a yellow eye. And it features strong fragrance. Photos of Dainty Maid depict only a single flower at a time, suggesting that the rose may not be very generous with its blossoms.

BTW:Edmund LeGrice is known for breeding roses far off the beaten path and as such has a kind of cult following among rosarians. Dainty Maid's is likely to have fallen into obscurity were it not to have been chosen as a parent for David Austin's Constance Spry.
