The cup-shaped flowers are citrus scented. They appear in reliable flushes throughout the growing season.
At just 3-4 feet tall, Rosa 'Angel Face' is the perfect addition to smaller gardens. There is also a climbing Angel Face rose which grows to a height of 8-11 feet and can produce hundreds of flowers per season.
Plant this rose in the sunniest location you can provide. The flowers develop their best color in bright, all day sun. If you grow it in an overcast or rainy climate, it will bloom a different shade than it would in a sunny climate.
'Angel Face' Floribunda rose exhibits greater disease resistance in dry, sunny places than it does when exposed to high humidity.

Bushes grown in Florida may need to be sprayed once or twice during the rainy season.
In the humid south, it might pay you to find a plant that is grafted onto Rosa fortuneana rootstock which is the best rootstock for this climate.
The flower buds form on new wood so hard pruning in early spring will pay off in a greater abundance of flowers throughout the season. This will also keep the bush compact.
This rose appreciates a slightly acid soil and regular feedings. It is hardy from zone 5a (with protection) to 9b.
*The ruffled flower petals are very fragrant--even once the blossoms have "gone over". Collect the spent blooms and use the petals to scent your bath water for a cheap luxury spa treatment!
