This rose has a ground hugging fountain shape. I've had no problems with blackspot and aphids don't seem to really be too interested in the Fairy roses. Plant these with red fairy roses for a knockout show in late spring and fall. The blossoms are quite small-thumbnail size, but they are produced in vast numbers.
