The colour of Angelique will stop you in your tracks. It is usually described in the catalogues as bright vermillion – I would call it bright orange. It is not a colour that I would normally appreciate but the colour is so bright, so startling and so pure, that it demands attention and, therefore, could not be forsaken when spotted in the nursery. In my apricot bed, it acts as a perfect contrast.
Not much is written about Angelique in my catalogues and rose books except that it is bushy rather than tall, and is a consistent bloomer. My plant is healthy, disease resistant and does flower consistently throughout the season.
It is also noted for its bloom form and swirling centre.
Angelique is a Hybrid Tea rose. It was intoduced by Kordes in 1985.
