I planted a bareroot angel face last season. It is still small, 2ft tall. But it came through the zone 6 winter with just mulch protection. It flushes well and the scent is very powerful. You can smell it on the other side of the garden. It has some B.S. on it but very little, no mildew. I just love this one so much I decided to get another and plant in my front yard for next year. The added bonus is that angel face can survive in part shade, which is great. Good cut flower, will last approx 4days in a vase.

The breeder’s name is David Ruston, not Rushton.
