Star Of The Nile™

Intense, deep pink, very large fully double 4" blooms (petals 80) that age to the blended colors of an Egyptian sunrise. Bears the wonderful fragrance so closely associated with the Middle East: the myrrh perfume is also in its parent 'The Yeoman'. The young foliage and stems are bronze red, developing into a densely foliaged continual blooming plant with dark-green matte leaves. Much admired by visitors to our gardens. Makes a good cut flower.

Early BloomerReview by Suzanne
In my garden this rose is intensely colored but is not a flashy "neon" pink. This year it started leafing out in February, and has the first buds on it now. I expect to see flowers by next week. The fragrance is deep but not citrusy. It has done very well in a tall pot and gets winter sun (when we have it; we often get morning fog here, and no sign of blackspot). (Posted on 3/11/2015)
Delicious Fragrance Review by Henry
This rose smells like candy! The very unique color seems to mirror the delicious fragrance. Wants to bloom continuously in my garden. I don't think there is another rose that smells like it.. One of the best Heirloom Roses in my opinion. (Posted on 6/12/2014)
