Which mauve rose could it be?

ordphien(9)May 5, 2014

Last year I found this rose in Lowe's.
It was tagless, but otherwise healthy.

And for some unknown reason marked down to $6.

I had been coveting Angel face in the local nurseries for a while now. And it looked and smelled so similar I said. Why not?

Is it Angel face?
Two things stand out as different.
The first being the leaves on the ones at the nursery are rather glossy..These are rather matte. The second is the pictures I see, and again, the ones at the nursery always have ruby edges. I've never seen a trace on mine.

The fragrance is divine. The strong lemony fruitloops type smell I associate with lavender roses

It looks very pink in this photo lol.
I must confess this is my only photo as I completely neglected it last year. It languished in a pot.
Doing better this year.

In my experience, Angel Face is a more matte leaf and I don't remember seeing any ruby edges on them. This does look like Angel Face to me.

How interesting.
I might just call it Angel face then. The lack of ruby edges throws me more than anything

It looks like Angel Face to me. It has the typical ruffled form and I can see some deeper blushing on the outside petals. Weather conditions can have a large affect on the coloring of my AF.
