Angel Face is a truly lovely mauve-colored rose. Striking color and nice frilly ruffled blooms. Unfortunately, it was very prone to blackspot here in my humid climate. I spray my roses with fungicide every two weeks, but that was not enough to keep the disease away. I would have had to spray it weekly to keep it clean. I was not willing to do that, so I dug it up and tossed it.

This rose has the most beautiful blooms. They start out in the high centered classic hybrid tea shape. The colors range from mauve to lavender. When the blooms unfurl the petals take on a lovely frilly edging to them. The blooms also take on a wonderful scent. These are the reasons I keep this rose in my garden. I have to say that the vigor of this rose is terrible, at least in my garden. It literally doesn't grow! I don't think it's even two feet.
