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!
