The Angela rose literally covers itself with roses! As the picture shows, the blooms are rose pink in color, highlighted in the center with light pink, and have a crimson reverse. They are very cupped (like no other rose). The cup shaped blooms show off golden stamens.
The flowers never quite open out completely. They appear in very tight, large clusters that show the beautiful contrast between the pink inside and red outsides of the booms.
The heavy flower clusters on the Angela rose remain on the bush for a long time.
The flowers come on short stems, and because of their sheer numbers, the weight of the flowers cause them to bow down a bit, creating a pleasing lax habit.
It is very free-flowering with perpetual blooming all season.
Cooler climates will see a more upright growing bush. Warmer climates experience a more lax bush that grows to around 6', where you can train it to be the perfect Pillar rose that is never without flowers.
