'The Fairy' shrub rose is simply in a class by itself! Tops for vigor, perfect health, hardiness, and its super ability to produce graceful clusters of charming pink, 1½-inch rosette blossoms (each comprised of about 25 petals) from early summer until hard frost, it has been a feature of fine gardens for over 80 years now, and only becomes more beloved as newer cultivars try -- and fail! -- to equal its performance!

For many, many months on end, this 2- to 4-foot-high and -wide shrub churns out long canes nearly overwhelmed by their bounty of 1½-inch, bubblegum-pink blooms that offer a light apple fragrance! A single spray is a bouquet for which you'll need a rather large vase! Minimal pruning and deadheading can increase flowering. And the disease-resistant, glossy, dark green foliage stays lovely even when not adorned with blossoms. Ideal in the perennial border, in front of shrubs, erupting into color along the foundation, or the focal point of a patio garden, 'The Fairy' is an everblooming wonder!

To create a solid hedge of color, we suggest you space plants 3 feet apart in the sunny garden. 'The Fairy' may begin blooming a week or two later than most roses, but oh, does it ever make up for lost time! This rose truly does have a magic all its own!
