    Survives for me at zone 5 with minimal winter protection. I have 3 of these, 2 with minimum protection, one heavily protected by mulch (this picture). All 3 have performed about the same. Smells wonderful, reliable rebloomer. Good cut flower, too.

    This relative of Angel Face was advertised as the perfect substitute for Angel Face when it debuted. Unfortunately, this allegedly disease-resistant rose has been just as vulnerable to black spot and pest damage as Angel Face in my garden and it isn't as pretty.
