Lichfield Angel Rose

Lichfield Angel  is blooming today at the nursery and it is radiant!  It begins as a soft peach and transforms into a creamy white.  It forms a vigorous shrub 4′ by 3′ is an excellent repeat bloomer.  The subtle colors of this rose as it blossoms are captivating and appear to be lit from within.  Maybe this luminosity is how it was named after an angel.  The Lichfield Angel is an early medieval limestone sculpture recently discovered at the Lichfield Cathedral in Great Britain.  The David Austin Nursery is close to this Cathedral.  What is it about this rose?  Is it the blush?  Is it the glow?  Like a soft baby kiss, this rose is like an angel’s lullaby.  It will add harmony to the garden.
