Gardening with Old Roses
(Nov 1993)  Page(s) 59.  
Angel Face it has a lot of attributes that make it fit well with old roses. Rich mauve with a lavender-lilac tone, the petals have a lightly frilled edge that is slightly darker in colour... spicy fragrance...

p111 Before leaving the Rugosas and their marvellous hips, we should mention a New Zealand rose, ‘Anne Endt’, an R. foliolosa Rugosa hybrid. Growing to a height of 1.8m, this sprawling shrub has a more fern-like quality to its leaves than the other Rugosas. The single-petalled flowers are of rich magenta with golden stamens, and they set deep red hips, smaller than most Rugosas. A lovely sprawling but graceful rose, it is well worth growing, but beware – it will sucker for miles, so always choose a budded plant.

Page 11: Physicians discovered that the petals kept their perfume when dried and that it was a useful astringent. Later, this variety, R. gallica officinalis, became known as the 'Rose of Provins', when it was adopted by the French who founded a thriving industry at Provins based on various conserves made from its dried petals.

Prospero a small compact plant, with the flowers held directly upright in clusters... [when open the flowers] change colour to a deep warm violet-burgundy-red... it flowers constantly in a warm climate, although it is said not to perform well in colder areas...
