Comments Five brilliant coral petals are set off by chrome-yellow stamens for a fiery effect. The blossoms quickly fade to a soft rose. And the form goes downhill quickly. There is, supposedly, some fragrance. Bloom continuity is good. Nancy Hayward is distributed in Australia and New Zealand. One rosarian tells of it being trained on the wall outof his second story balcony. There are not many climbing roses that manage to combine such a high level of bloom production and bloom continuity through the season.
