Mystic Fairy
Rosa BAIfairy 'Mystic Fairy'

Compact shrub rose with glossy green foliage that is red when newly emerged. Flowers are red, double, 3 inches wide (petal count 17-27) with only a slight fragrance. This is a continuous (perpetual) blooming rose. Very vigorous.  
Full sun, well-drained soil. Prune by the renewal method removing about one-third of the oldest canes in the spring to the soil line as needed to maintain an open shrub and encourage new cane production. Prune the stem back to a branch angle (a process called heading back) as needed to reduce width and height.
