Nancy Steen Rose

nancy steen rose

For some reason, I think of Nancy Steen as being very similar to the English roses, bred by David Austin. It has the sameold fashioned look to the blooms, with wonderful fragrance. I just can't find a bad word to say about this rose. Lovely subtle hues of coral to salmon pink,fading to white, disease resistance, and a lovely perfume.

Notice in the pictures the variation between blooms? Absolutely lovely! If you are looking for a pale blush pink rose, then Nancy Steen is hard to beat.
