The Fairy

'The Fairy' is the first of the groundcover roses, and it tends to spread outward and downward. It produces large trusses of small (3/4" to 1"), light pink, double flowers that fade to almost white in hot weather. 'The Fairy' is very healthy, and tolerates poorer soils and general neglect. The bloom is continuous from April through Christmas. It is an excellent choice for mass plantings and low borders. I just bought 10 fairy roses to add to the boarder at the entrance of our house. I will pair them with lavender and herbs. The lavender is on it's way. It should be lovely in a few years.
