Betty does not disappoint !Review by Cindy

Betty Prior arrived and was planted in my Everett, Washington garden in May. She is blooming continuously, and brings joy everyday. This rose is hardy and on its way to being a long term resident. This is a great rose. Simple in beauty, and ever ready to please. (Posted on 7/27/2017)
Lovely Old-Fashioned RoseReview by Annie D

When I moved into my home, Betty Prior was here (central Ohio, along a south-facing brick wall). She grew into a huge shrub (8' tall, 5' wide) and would grow larger if I did not prune her back several times per year. The super-abundant blossoms are especially beautiful because the buds are dark pink and the open blossoms are paler pink, so there's a luscious display of shades of pink. Betty reblooms constantly here. The flowers are in clusters, and, although the stems are thin, I often include them in bouquets and vases. Very healthy, low maintenance. (Posted on 1/24/2017)

My grandmother, aunts, mother, and I have had this rose everywhere we have lived. I am living in Washington State now and have been looking for "Betty". I will provide her with an excellent home. (Posted on 1/16/2017)

The description is right on. I Have had this rose for 40+ years and it still thrills me each and every year. Small bouquets can be picked. I do find it shade tolerant! (Posted on 10/24/2013)
