What a delight this classic floribunda is, beguiling you with a sweet fruity scent, "blushing" lavender blooms, and a free-flowering nature! Winner of many awards, 'Angel Face' is the rose you will rely on for a big show, indoors and out, for many seasons to come.

The flowers are exceptionally large -- 3½inches! -- for a floribunda, opening from attractive urn-shaped buds and arising in great clusters, beginning in early summer and continuing into mid-fall. The petals are slightly waved, like a flared skirt, which adds to their depth. Some boast a faint, deep crimson outline along the tip, as if they had been dipped in wet paint! And all are richly redolent of sweet citrus, a scent so addictive that 'Angel Face' received the ARS John Cook Medal for fragrance.

Introduced in 1968 by Swim & Weeks, 'Angel Face' arose from a cross of ('Circus' x 'Lavender Pinocchio') x 'Sterling Silver', and you can detect the faint silvery sheen of its parentage in certain lights. It is itself the parent of the lemon-scented 'Climbing Angel Face'. It won All-American Rose Selections honors in 1969.

'Angel Face' is an upright, bushy plant with lustrous dark green, leathery foliage and a neat 3-foot-tall and -wide form. It is best in full sun and any well-drained soil. A wonderful choice for garden or vase!

Great Scented Rose
TheEggplant from PA wrote on April 17, 2017:

I am making a large lavender to purple rose garden. The flowers last year right after planting were all over the plant and smelled wonderful. It is not as cold hardy as the zones would suggest. I am in 6b, we had one cold spell this winter of 3 days long, and this was the only rose that died out of 12. I am buying another and protecting it better this winter because it is worth having.

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market.
