A beautiful rose that blooms consistently all year in my garden. It's exceptionally healthy, rarely exhibiting any signs of black spot.

You can see the 'Angel Face' lineage in this rose in the ruffled petals. When Ralph Moore was asked why he used 'Angel Face' for breeding, as it was commonly considered a weak rose in this part of the US, his answer was, "Because it was there."

'Silver Cloud' is prone to black spot in my garden. I do not spray and the rose recovers quite well.
