Comments On a short frame for a hybrid tea rose Elizabeth Harkness bears flowers that are buff or ivory, possibly with some pink and apricot blush here and there. The petals reflex strongly, producing a slightly pointed effect. They also fade pretty quickly, and the open rose might frequently be described as being white. The fragrance is strong and redolent of clove. It's a healthy grower, and the dark green leaves make the flowers positively glow.
