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.

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.
