By Appointment™

Type: English Legend

Robert Harkness describes this true beauty as having an air of sublime elegance. The soft apricot shaded buff 3 1/2" blooms are fully double and produced in lovely sprays on straight stems. The continual blooming rose has one of the prettiest bud forms and shapely blooms and may be used wonderfully in indoor arrangements. A vigorous, disease-resistant, upright bush that covers itself with dark green foliage that makes a dramatic background for its delicately beautiful blooms. Petals 24.

Blooming for the first timeReview by Myrna
My By Appointment is blooming for the first time, tiny rose but pretty. Hope to see bigger roses next season.

This is a banded rose so it takes time.

Very Small Return on InvestmentReview by Camille
Unfortunately, this rose should be named "Disappointment." I purchased it four years ago. Perhaps the name "By Appointment" fits only because it disappears and reappears with only one or two leaflets at ground level once or twice per Summer. It has never bloomed. In contrast, other nearby roses such as "Mary Magdalene" (my favorite), Graham Thomas, and Anne Harkness" are thriving. This is the first negative review I've written. My other Heirloom roses are performing very well. (Posted on 4/13/2016)
