One of the Clements introductions that I grow here in my front yard rose garden. Beautiful old garden rose form and scent. The pinkish color is quite beautiful also. Like most Clements roses, Star of the Nile, is very disease resistant even here in my hot humid summer. No faults at all, the perfect rose. A real winner in my garden. I just love this rose.

I bought mine directly from Heirloom roses as a small band and simply planted it directly where I wanted it to grow.
