The Fairy has a lush, spreading shape that will soften any angle. The small, bright green, shiny leaves and the clustered sprays of little, very double pink roses are on display throughout the growing season, although Summer sun fades the flowers to blush white. Massed to create a statement or allowed to gracefully cascade over the edge of flower beds, this rose will be treasured for its versatility. This is one of the best summer blooming roses.
