“Angel Wings” Rose

On 18, Jan 2011 | 11 Comments | In roses | By All Year Garden

“Angel Wings” is a precious miniature China rose with flowers and fragrance reminiscent of apple blossoms. It will grow from seed. I bought it too late to plant in the garden before the frost, so I parked it indoors, and look what happened!

I can hardly wait for these flowers to go to seed, this is an open pollinated rose! It was not bothered one bit by the fact that it is the middle of winter indoors.

“Angel Wings” has delicate little clusters of fragrant flowers  white, rose and pink and it is hardy to zone 5. Great for landscaping, it grows in compact mounds that spread 2-3 feet, and can even be used as an annual started from seed. It will bloom the first year. This rose is not patented, so you can propagate it from seed, soft cuttings, hard cuttings, you name it!

I’m almost tempted to start one in a pot and keep it indoors. Never say never…

      I wrote in an earlier entry that one should never ever keep roses indoors, even though miniatures are sold in pots to keep on the window sill, because they are simply miserable without the full sun, the wind and the rain. Turns out I was right the first time. My rose got sick and I barely managed to save it. It lost all its leaves and started new growth from the ground again after I planted it outdoors in a place with full sun. It looks like it is going to make it.

      Just in case you are still wondering, roses really, really don’t like being indoors.

  5. It’s summer time and I’ve been looking all over the place for some front yard landscaping ideas, backyard landscaping ideas and gardening ideas. Your website is def. giving me a few ideas!

  6. I’m impressed at how you have a great hold of the matter. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My Facebook blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would genuinely benefit from some of the information you provide on your site. Please let me know if this is not okay with you. Thanks!
