‘The Fairy’; arrived on the gardening scene eighty years ago & is still popular all over the world. A cross between the flat growing Wichuriana rambler & compact, very free flowering Polyantha.
It is impervious to fungus diseases & it produces sprays of light pink, small semi double, firm petalled flowers throughout summer into winter. It has a spreading growth habit producing fresh flower sprays from the base.
This neat shrublet will not grow much more than knee height with its flower spikes spreading out and arching over pots or wall edgings.
‘Lovely Fairy’ is a soft clear pink clone of ‘The Fairy’.
