I planted an own-root Blueberry Hill to replace a virused grafted Angel Face that was growing in my garden and doing very poorly. I wanted to stay in the same color tone with a blue mauve-colored bloom. Worked out perfectly. To me, Blueberry Hill is a much prettier rose than the most likely better-known Angel Face.

Rita, located on the north shore of Nassau County Long Island, NY zone 6/7, where it is humid in the summer and roses always need to be sprayed with systemic fungicide to avoid blackspot.

The large, well-spaced, irregularly ruffled petals of Blueberry Hill sometimes remind me of big jigsaw puzzle pieces. The yellow stamens nicely complement the violet / mauve color of the blooms. It's slower to repeat than other varieties in my garden, but that may be due to its placement, where the afternoon sun is blocked by nearby arborvitae.
