Rosa Angelique was bred by foreign breeders and introduced to our country's flower growers 30 years ago. The author of this hybrid tea variety and its description is the famous German rose grower Rymer Cordes.
Rosa Angelica is characterized by abundant flowering and uniform distribution of large bright flowers on a compact bush. The variety is widely used for distillation., and increased resistance to powdery mildew determines its popularity among domestic and foreign flower growers.
Rosa Angelica belongs to the popular tea-hybrid varieties with abundant flowering and a pleasant steady aroma. The bush is powerful, straight-growing, up to 1 meter high, with dark green large leaves of a leathery type. Flowers of a bright salmon-orange hue, with a diameter of 110-120 mm, terry, consist of approximately 45 petals, are located singly on strong and fairly long shoots. A fully bloomed flower has a very original shape and a twisted central part. The buds are large, aligned oval in shape, 50-60 mm high. Rosa Angelica belongs to the re-flowering varieties. Flowering is observed from the first decade of summer to late autumn.
For cultivating varieties, it is recommended to allocate areas protected from cold winds, with slightly acidic and loose soils. Rose has medium resistance to powdery mildew and black spotting and good winter hardiness, which makes it suitable for cultivation in most regions of our country.
How to plant a hybrid tea rose
Features of irrigation events
One of the most important conditions for the successful cultivation of Angelica roses is proper watering, which contribute to multiple and plentiful flowering. Insufficient irrigation often leads to a deterioration in the development of rose bushes and shredding of flowers.
Watering should be done weekly. Newly planted or transplanted plants require more frequent and abundant irrigation measures to facilitate the root system rooting process. The frequency and volume of irrigation may vary depending on the soil and climatic conditions of the cultivation region. Mulching the soil gives a good result, allowing you to retain moisture at the roots of the plant.
When watering, you must adhere to the following recommendations:
- at the stage of active vegetation, roses of the tea-hybrid group must be provided with weekly irrigation (at the rate of a bucket of water for each plant);
- in too hot and dry weather, the bushes should be watered about 2 times a week;
- with the onset of the autumn period and cooling, watering should first be reduced, and then completely stopped;
- at the stage of final preparation of the rose for winter, it is advisable to produce one abundant moisture-charging irrigation (25-30 liters of water per plant);
- it is best to water the plants in the early morning or after sunset: this will allow the foliage to dry out and minimize the risk of infection by a fungal infection;
- for irrigation it is necessary to use only warm and settled water;
- after irrigation, it is recommended to carry out surface loosening of the soil, which prevents the formation of a soil crust, which blocks the air access to the root system.
Competent and timely dressing of the rose is very important for its proper growth and development, as well as abundant and prolonged flowering.
- The best for feeding Angelica roses are complex mixtures of potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen (1: 2: 1).
- As fertilizers, you can use organics in the form of bird droppings or manure, diluted with water and infused for several days.
- Compost under the bushes is best applied in the fall: this will allow the fertilizer to decompose during the winter and enrich the soil with useful substances.
- Composting also contributes to an increase in soil friability.
- The first fertilizing with complex fertilizers is carried out from mid to late April, a couple of weeks after the plant is covered with foliage. In this case, it is advisable to use "Citovit" and "Zircon" containing all the substances necessary for the growth and development of roses.
- The second top dressing is carried out in the period from mid-May to the first decade of June and is designed to stimulate repeated flowering.
- The last top dressing should be carried out in the last decade of August or the beginning of September (no later). It allows you to slow down the growth processes and facilitates the preparation of the aerial part and the root system of the plant for winter frosts.
It should be remembered that a lack of nutrients can lead to plant diseases, but excessive feeding can also have a detrimental effect on it.
At different stages of the growing season, as well as depending on the age of the rose bush, flower growers can carry out several types of pruning to improve the appearance of the plant and ensure the optimal development of decorative culture:
- Long pruning is used when planting Angelica roses, as well as after removing winter shelter in the spring.
- Medium pruning is used after the plants bloom. It stimulates the growth of new shoots and promotes the formation of a bush.
- Short pruning is done during spring planting.
- Combined pruning improves the appearance of the bush and enhances its decorative effect.
- Sanitary pruning is necessary for the prevention of diseases and the fight against them by removing all affected, pathogenic microflora, weak, dry and too thin shoots.
