A new standard rose cultivar “Pink Angel” was bred from the cross between white standard cultivar “Athena” and red standard cultivar “Brove” at the National Horticulture Research Institute. The cross was made in 1999 and “Pink Angel” was finally selected in 2003 after investigating characteristics for three years from 2001 to 2003. “Pink Angel”, a pink standard cultivar grows vigorously and has fashionable flower color. The major characteristics of this cultivar are 112.2 stems/m²/year in yield, 60.3 cm in length of cut flower, 12 cm in flower diameter, 38.5 in petal number, and 11.2 days in vase life. This cultivar can be propagated by both cutting and grafting. The consumer’s preference of this cultivar is relatively higher than that of control cultivar, “Noblesse”.
