Intense, deep pink, very large, fully double, 4" blooms have 80+ petals that age to the blended colors of an Egyptian sunrise on this Shrub. Star of the Nile offers a wonderful fragrance closely associated with the Middle East. Her myrrh perfume is also similar to her parent The Yeoman. The young foliage and stems are bronze red, developing into a densely foliaged, continual blooming plant with dark-green, matte leaves. Star of the Nile makes a good cut flower.

Exquisite color in the Florida sub

It’s mid-September and 90+ degrees every day. I’ve had this rose for three weeks now, the first two weeks I left her in the grower’s pot, then transferred to a 3 gallon “temporary” pot filled with organic mix. Star has taken off like a rocket, pardon the expression. She has two magnificent blooms and one bud already. As soon as I have her permanent home ready, I’ll be planting her in the ground, and using the wonderful Heirloom soil supplements and trying the deer repellent. Thanks to our intense heat and sun, the blooms open fast. It will be interesting to see how long they last once it starts cooling down.

A Real Crowd Pleaser

Pink isn't my favorite color for roses, but the brilliance and reviews of Star of the Nile made me take a chance on her. I frequently display my roses by wearing them in my hair or pinning them to my blouse and I've gotten my share of compliments on them. But, I was bowled over by the number of people who stopped me to exclaim their delight over Star of the Nile. From the Uber driver who picked me up to the customers at the CVC and Walmart, to my daughter and her in-laws, I got a steady stream of admiration for this pink glowing beauty I clipped to my hair. I made sure I gave Heirloom the credit, so don't be surprised if there's an uptick in interest from Coastal Texas. I've never had so many compliments over any other rose before. Her vivid pink color is gorgeous, but her scent is intoxicating as well. Her blooms do seem to glow, even in our current heat wave. Stunning beauty!

You can't have enough of this rose

I'm a one-of-each-variety person but I have 4 of these roses. The rose is exquisite. Sunset colors with a warm over-glow. Beautiful form and fragrance. Always a pleasure to look at.

Continual Sweetness and Light.

If you don’t plant this beauty, you’ll miss out on so much! The blooms are GORGEOUS! A smoldering shocking pink with a fragrance that is sumptuous and delectable. The scent is like a sensual confectionery dreaminess and should be bottled. My mom picked this rose as she was married in ‘64 and her colors were Turquoise and Shocking Pink. Don’t be hesitant. Just go ahead and choose this rose to be a reliable source of fragrance, blooms, and to pull the eye if visitors to a certain point in your garden. And it’s durable! A contracted worker stepped on one of these. And it bounced right back!! With just as many or more blooms! You’ll not be disappointed! ????:sparkles:????:sparkles:????

Lovely scent

In the spring of 2020 I broke down and spent quite a bit of money on roses from Heirloom Roses. This was one of them. When it arrived it did not look like much but the first season it leaved out right away and had several blossoms and this spring it looks great. Here in Vermont (used to be zone 4, now zone 5; a benefit of climate change??) we never know what the winter will bring and I do cover my roses with a deep mulch of leaves. All but one of the roses I bought last year did really well and are blooming now in June. Star of the Nile has beautiful color and scent a great combination.
