A couple of months ago a friend gave me a cutting of her Fairy rose I so admired in her garden. It rooted almost over night, and as small as the plant is, it is flowering already. Thank you Kristin for sharing :)
Reading up on it I learned this Polyantha rose 'The Fairy' is an Antique Garden Rose and was introduced by J. A. Bentall in 1932 in England. This mini rose grows 3 to 4 ft tall and wide and flowers just about non-stop all summer long.
Since this rose does root extremely well, it says, the canes touching the ground will root, therefore it may spread in all directions. The Fairy does well in full sun or part shade and is disease resistant. Being a miniature rose, it is well suited for container gardening.
