I have only used this watering can once on some small plants the gardening committee planted in front of the church. This is the first time I had used a Haws watering can and have never used a watering can with the rose faced upward. Much to my surprise, watering with the rose faced upward allowed the flow of water to drop at such a gentle flow that the little plants were not disturbed. In addition, I found the 2 little extra rod style pieces just in front and back of the can (attached to the handles) were great to hold the rose and other attachment when not in use. All-in-all a great product. Only wish it came in 2 gallon size.
