Characteristics and uses:
The flowers of the rose 'Lichfield Angel'® look like charming little pink-peach cups which when they open let appear many short petals regularly arranged, (rosettes).
Each draws a perfect circle of bloomy petals, creamy apricot including numerous smaller petals. The external ones, which make up the circle, fold out, to reveal a rounded, creamy white flower. The entire effect is striking: A nearly pure white, the signature of a round, vigorous tree, whose flowers swing graciously on the branches: The vision is simply splendid.
Perfectly suitable for a border, his soft coloring will also allow it to be a pleasant intermediate between the pink and yellow tones. Normally softly scented, it can let escape, sometimes, a powerful fragrance of cloves.
