I love this rose! This is the most forgiving rose I have ever grown. When my grandmother's house was going to be sold, I went and collected some of her plants. I dug out part of a long-neglected rose bush (not fertilized, sprayed or pruned in at least 10 years), which turned out to be 'The Fairy'. I yanked it around with me until I bought my own house 4 years ago. At that time, my back was collapsing due to an old fracture, and I was very limited in what I could do. I dug a hole in the clay dirt we have in TN and plopped this poor thing in it with no amendments or fertilizing (I know, I know--this was also before rose fever hit me and I had no idea what I was doing). About 3 months later, I had major back surgery, and I was completely unable to tend my garden for 3 years. This rose blooms continuously until at least November--sometimes December here, and I have never seen a pest or disease anywhere on it--and all without the benefit of any fertilizing, spraying or pruning for 3 years. It is even more beautiful this spring. I have also found that it makes beautiful dried flowers--you can even cut off a whole spray and dry it that way. I am currently focusing on making cuttings of this great rose to give to my brother for his wedding, and to plant more of them in my yard. It may not be the flashiest rose, and I can't detect any scent at all, but you just can't beat it for easy beauty in the landscape--not to mention providing armfuls of bouquets for the house.
