All-America Rose Selections (AARS) Winner 1969

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

The flowers are exceptionally large—4 inches—for a floribunda, opening from attractive urn-shaped buds and arising in great clusters, beginning in early summer and continuing into mid-fall. The 30 to 35 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. The next year, in 1969, it won All-America Rose Selections honors.

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.

Angel love

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Angel face has always been my favorite rose for the headiness of it's scent to the beauty and abundance of it's blooms. Usually you are sold out before I can get one. This year I got 2! Planted near windows and pathway. Will let you know how they perform.

Good size

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

We purchased two. One has sprouted leaves the other has the original tiny buds on the branches. I hope it breaks through.

Great Scented Rose

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

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.
