To plant a garden is to believe in the future.
Meet my new obsession: Earth Angel. I’m besotted with this dreamy floribunda rose from Jackson and Perkins! The fluffy, peony-like blooms smell like heaven on earth. However wonderful you think this rose smells, I promise you it smells even better.
The antique rose scent isn’t the only thing I love about this rose. Its disease-resistant and has proven to be one of the easiest keepers in my garden on one of the hardest growing seasons. I live in the Dallas, Texas area and past two years have been some of the rainiest years on record. While some of my other roses did not weather the storms gracefully, Earth Angel did with nary a yellow leaf in sight.
This is a pretty compact rose, growing only 3-4 feet tall when fully mature. Mine is only a year old and is still quite small but treated me to ample blooms that are such a pale pink, they’re almost white. The old-fashioned cupped shape is a treat for me. I grow mostly hybrid teas but adore the shape of this rose.
Am I going on and on too much? Ah, new love! I really cannot say enough good things about this rose. It has it all: shape, scent, beauty, and it’s an easy keeper to boot. I highly recommend adding this heavenly rose to your garden.
