Hybridizer: Moore, 1992, Sport of "The Fairy".2.5' W x 4' H. I grow this variety. I do not find it to be as floriferous as "The Fairy". Also, while the color is listed as red, I would characterize mine as more of a dark rose. I have an area of red and white roses. I planted the Red Fairy there surrounded by Mr Lincoln, Bergman, Tradescantia, etc. Surrounded by all of these reds, the Red Fairy "sticks out" as an obvious misfit. I think it will probably be a cute plant when I find it a more appropriate place in the garden. Just be advised that it may not be a true red.
