The recent frosty nights and temps dipping into the 20’s have put most of my roses to sleep for the winter. Today however, I was glad to find a shrub of ‘The Fairy’ in bloom. This rose is tucked away on the side of our house in an area I call the swamp (water stands in this area when it rains) . Planted very close to the house, its blooms were spared the frost. Such a delicate bloom and soft pink color along with superior disease resistance makes this rose a winner in my garden.
